You may fish in Lake Pukaki any time, however you may only fish in the Tasman River from November 1st through to April 30th each year.  You also need a fishing license. Licenses can be purchased at Glentanner Park reception or online through Fish and Game New Zealand.


Glentanner Station is famous for Tahr hunting. Tahr are native to the Himalayan ranges of India and Nepal, and were introduced to New Zealand for hunting! The Southern Alps are an ideal habitat for them.

There are also great opportunities for Tahr and Chamois hunting in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park.
