About Us

Robbie MacMillan.My name is Robbie MacMillan and I started the Mackenzie Journeys business so that I could come back home after some years in the Agri Sales and Service Industry.

The reason I established Mackenzie Journeys is because I enjoy showing visitors the spectacular Mackenzie/Mt Cook region close up and personal, something which most mainstream tours never get to witness!

Having been brought up as a third generation 'local' and serving my early work apprenticeship in the Mackenzie area on sheep and cattle stations I have a good knowledge of the region and the relatively short history since settlement (150 years) including the pioneering ventures of farmers, tourist operators, and the massive hydro electric generation development, which, not being obtrusive, has added to the spectacle.

Priviledged to have been a very small part of, and to have witnessed much of the modern development, I now look forward to the opportunity of showing locals and overseas visitors alike, close up, our beautiful spectacular region, which cannot be duplicated anywhere else in the world.

I very much look forward to guiding and assisting you in a wonderful experience I am sure you will recall and savour for ever.
