Oh Wow!! Its a small castle... . Look at it again and imagine it without the "castle look". In all honesty, as original and ambitious as it was, it just looks out of place.

The Tafaria Castle and Country Lodge stands on expansive land in the middle of nowhere. At night, the lights shine brightly from a distance showing that there’s indeed life around the Deighton’s Downs ranch.

The elegant architecture seems to be the only sign of civilisation in the otherwise remote area. Before the castle — built in medieval era style — was completed this year, the ranch was bare land with no trees around save for a few scattered shrubs. No one better explains the harsh reality of this area that once had no water or roads and was prone to incidents of cattle rustling better than George Waititu, who grew up there.
