The Lindis Pass Hotel

Lindis Valley, South Island, NZ

 

This is a special ruin - not even most of the locals know this exists!

We went on a mission to find this through a section of the old Lindis Road that is no longer in use. It's really only suitable for 4wds and crosses a very muddy field. It used to be on private land, but DOC bought the land and is now restoring it. The hotel is made of schist.

I would like to go back here in autumn :)
