The location is also a mid-way point between the ski field areas of Cardrona, Snow Park, the Remarkables and Coronet Peak.
Significantly, Royalburn Station also has Resource Consent for a substantial 11 site lifestyle subdivision in addition to the two existing house sites on the property. It is envisaged that such development would compliment the farming operation with potential for a possible farm-park concept.
The station currently operates as a sheep farm with approximately 250 acres planted in barley and turnips. The farm is operated by a live-in manager who occupies one of the property's two existing homes. Of significant benefit are the property's existing water rights.

Currently there are 10 hydrants on the property and four water rights for irrigation.
Royalburn Station occupies approximately one third of the entire Crown Terrace area. Whilst this prominent position offers generous views out over the Wakatipu Basin it also offers a fantastic farming opportunity.
