Camp Glenorchy opens as New Zealand’s most sustainably-designed visitor accommodation

Aside from providing beautifully appointed, comfortable accommodation, the founders behind Camp Glenorchy hope to inspire and share learning about new standards in sustainable tourism.

Scheelite Campfire Shelter.
This world-first guest accommodation aims to set new standards in sustainable tourism and has been designed according to the Living Building Challenge™ - promoted as the most rigorous of all international sustainability standards.  

Camp Glenorchy’s resource-efficient guest accommodation comes in a range of budget options from the seven cabins, to two bunkhouses and seven powered RV/campervan sites with common areas for guests. It also boasts the South Island’s largest solar garden and three wetlands developed to collect and fully process all wastewater onsite, producing clean water for irrigation of native plant landscaping.

Set in the foothills of the Southern Alps in New Zealand’s South Island, Camp Glenorchy is a scenic 40-minute lakeshore drive from Queenstown along one of the country’s prettiest routes.  The region is famed for beautiful movie locations and as the setting off point for some of the country’s best known hiking trails, water-based adventures on Lake Wakatipu and braided rivers, and access to two national parks.
