Welcome to The Cairns

Lake Tekapo Accommodation and Golf Course

The Cairns offers unique accommodation and function venues, a superbly planned residential development and The Cairns Golf Course, all featuring stunning Lake Tekapo landscapes.

There are plenty of activities and things to do in Lake Tekapo. The Cairns development and golf course is only minutes from Tekapo and connected not only by the main highway but also by established walking and biking tracks.

The Cairns is a family based business established by Andrew and Karen Simpson who reside in Lake Tekapo in the heart of beautiful Mackenzie country, New Zealand.

Their children Ben, Amanda and Sam are also heavily involved in the family businesses. Amanda and partner Steve assist with the running of the The Cairns and the Balmoral Farmyard and Shop. Sam runs Balmoral and Mt John Stations and his partner Sarah owns and runs Mackenzie Alpine Horse Trekking. Ben and partner Gemma invest in various parts of the businesses.
