Legal challenge halts sale of historic high-country station

  • A legal challenge has stopped the sale of historic Mt Cook station, amid a claim it was not sold legitimately.

The matter could now go before the High Court, and the local couple who bought it several months ago have not been permitted to take possession.

The 2600-hectare station near the base of Mt Cook was bought in March by Clint and Alana Miles for an undisclosed sum.

The station was established in 1864, and was continuously owned by the Burnett family for 151 years.
