‘Meet the challenge’ – Respecting ourselves, others and the environment.
Mataki Lodge was built in 1967 and borders the Nelson Lakes National Park near Murchison, 120 km south of Nelson. This unique facility provides an excellent environment for the school’s personal development and outdoor education programmes. Most students will visit Mataki Lodge during their time at Nelson College and this experience while challenging is also rewarding and educational with an emphasis on self development and an appreciation of the natural environment.
