Welcome to Murchison Lodge

Murchison Lodge offers quality B&B accommodation with heaps of character. Enjoy warm and relaxed hospitality; a comfortable bed and a hearty BBQ breakfast before exploring or relaxing! The warm and welcoming timber Lodge is set on four quiet acres of mature wooded gardens and paddocks. Surrounded by mountains and bordering the Buller river it feel miles from anywhere but a five minutes walk will have you in “down town” Murchison with it’s pubs, cafés and eclectic shops. Stop for a couple of nights – there’s plenty to do and you can return at the end of the day to friendly faces and a cold beer on the veranda or a wine in front of the log fire.

 MAKE TIME FOR MURCHISON…

It is tempting to just see Murchison as a stop over point – but look a little closer and you will find it really is a destination. 

  • The Natural Flames Experience – Murchison is home to the world’s only perpetually burning fire in a forest! Take a half day trip to 4WD through an active farm and then hike through pristine beech forest before having tea and pancakes cooked on this amazing fire.
  • White water activities – Murchison is the white water capital of New Zealand. Two rafting comanies and the NZ kayak school can have you out enjoying the rivers from the ‘wet’ side. For a dryer trip – try the Jetboat in the Buller Gorge.
  • New Zealands longest swing bridge.  Test your legs on the 150m long suspension bridge  which takes you across the Buller river to explore the gold mining history and the earthquake fault of 1929. If your stomach can take it try the comet line back!
  • Top of the South – Perfectly situated for numerous day trips to three different coasts within about 1.5 hours drive. And three different National Parks – Abel Tasman, Kahurangi and the Nelson Lakes.
