Reference Number: 7321aa
Mount Algidus is an iconic station located in the Southern Alps, occupying the high country between two great rivers - the Rakaia & Wilberforce. Mount Algidus, a 53,000-acre cattle station is very much a working station, supporting 2,000 head of Aberdeen Angus cattle and a flock of 2,000 Perendale Romney cross-breed sheep. Much hard work and investment has gone into this farming enterprise since the owners bought the land 16 years ago.
In the 1940s Mount Algidus station was regarded as some of the wildest and roughest farming land in New Zealand and in 1963 was the inspiration for the bestselling book written by Mona Anderson, called ‘A River Rules My Life’. The Wilberforce River in all its moods governed her life for 33 years and she went on to write The Good Logs of Algidus in 1965, Over the River in 1966 and The Wonderful World at My Doorstep in 1968.
