A warm, welcoming destination in harmony with one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Our mission is to create a destination experience that “educates, inspires and delights our visitors.

The Headwaters is the umbrella name for an array of environmentally sustainable accommodation and retail services in Glenorchy, New Zealand.

The Headwaters encompasses a rebuilt general store - Mrs Woolly’s General Store - and a full range of accommodation options including 14 individual chalets at The Headwaters Eco Lodge - New Zealand’s first Net Zero energy visitor destination - and unpowered camping and campervan spots at Mrs Woolly’s Campground.

All profits from The Headwaters benefit the Glenorchy Community Trust, directed by local community members. The mission and vision of the community trust is to increase the vibrancy and resilience of the community of Glenorchy, a rural village nestled between the Humboldt and Richardson Mountains at the head of Lake Wakatipu.
