Molesworth muster

The 2010 muster of stock on Molesworth station, New Zealand’s largest, is carried out in ways not so different from 100 or 150 years earlier, although cattle have replaced sheep. But Molesworth, which is managed by the Department of Conservation, is also now open through the summer to visitors who come to cycle, raft, hunt, fish, camp or just drive through.
