The Wilderness Lodge Farm was first settled in 1860 by the Goldney brothers and named Cora Lynn after a locality in the Dumfries district in their native Scotland. Originally 13,000 hectares (33,000 acres), much of the high mountain areas became part of neighboring Arthur's Pass National Park and today it encompasses 2,400 hectares (6,000 acres) of the Upper Waimakariri Basin.
