Relax, you’re home.

Located in central Queenstown, Te Pā Tāhuna is a masterplanned community being developed on the site of the former high school on Gorge Road. There will be nearly 400 new homes, with Ngāi Tahu Property working together with the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development to ensure about 100 of those will be KiwiBuild aimed at first time buyers.

City Living.

Within a real community

Offering a range of properties, all walking distance to the CBD, we are building a vibrant community for all ages. This development will give a sense of space and place within Tāhuna-Queenstown with 360-degree alpine views.

There are a host of amenities conveniently on your doorstep including a supermarket, delicatessen, cafés and local businesses.

This is a place where you can live your best life – everyday. Green spaces, including the playing fields at Warren Park, will offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Central Otago summer sunshine with friends and family or take a short stroll to meet them in town. In winter months, take advantage of Coronet Peak a 15-minute drive from your home, and the Remarkables just half an hour away, so you can maximise your snow time. High quality landscape design and cultural landmarks throughout the development will showcase the Te Pā Tāhuna story, which is rooted in the histories and legends from centuries of Kāi Tahu presence around the shores of Whakatipu Waimāori (Lake Whakatipu).

An easy work and school commute will allow you to spend more time doing what you want – quality time with family at home or exploring the remarkable Whakatipu landscape. Te Pā Tāhuna is your opportunity to enjoy the Queenstown lifestyle. Ngāi Tahu Property will bring its inter-generational focus to ensure Te Pā Tāhuna offers Queenstowners the best of city living, within a real community.

Te Pā Tāhuna - What’s in a name?

This development has been gifted the name Te Pā Tāhuna. This name has great significance to mana whenua – referring to the original village settled on the foreshore of Whakatipu Waimāori. In essence, it is about ahi kā - a place where the ‘home fires always burn’.

In this region of rugged beauty, Tāhuna has always been a place to call home, a place to come together, to rest and be safe. It is a place of refuge and represents the spirit of adventure and exploration that is synonymous with Kāi Tahu, and the people of Queenstown.
