Jack’s Point is a unique 1,200ha (3,000 acres) settlement set in a spectacular location close to Queenstown and on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Backdropped by the Remarkables Mountain range it merges with the rural environment creating a unique community for people looking for an exceptional lifestyle.
The vision is for a village of 1,300 residential homes without impacting on the Jack’s Point original environment. To achieve this the building footprint is limited to five percent of the total property with the remainder retained as open space, including the 18-hole championship golf course, wetlands, reserves, biking and walking trails and other recreational amenities.
Jack’s Point takes its name from Jack Tewa, better known as “Maori Jack” who among other exploits, saved two friends from drowning after their boat overturned in Lake Wakatipu in 1862, close to the modern day Jack’s Point village, he is also credited with the first discovery of gold in the Arrow River that same year, which started the gold rush in the area.
The developers are committed to retaining the property’s historical and farming links and the village development, with the Clubhouse and Restaurant as the focal point, reflect this. Future proposals, as part of the 15-year plan, include a mix of retail stores and a luxury guest lodge
