Malcolm found a plot of land in 2000 and built Breckenridge Lodge with the help of a few tradesmen and friends. The building is architecturally designed with the idea early on, to create a structure that encompassed environmentally sustainable practices.

The garden was laid out and planted with hundreds of native trees which attract a variety of native birds. The lavender variety Pacific Blue is grown for oil used in the lodge’s soaps and shampoos. From the orchard of oranges, peaches, persimmon and other fruits Malcolm makes preserves and chutneys for the Lodge. The kitchen garden provides delicious herbs, salads and vegetables. All the produce from the orchard and garden is organically grown.

The sculptures and artworks throughout the garden have been created by local artists and friends. A pond at the base of the garden is home to a number of giant goldfish, Koura (freshwater crayfish) and frogs. Local ducks and birds regularly drop in for a visit so there is always something going on down there.

Malcolm has plans to further develop the property over the next few years, materialising a number of ideas and projects he has for the eco tourism aspect of the business.
