There is just over a week left to drive the Acheron Road through Molesworth Station before it is closed for the winter.

The unsealed road is over 200 kilometres long and runs through the historic high country station between Blenheim and Hanmer Springs.

This summer a number of groups have taken the scenic road, including vintage tractor clubs and motorcycle groups.

The road will still be used for the station's autumn muster, until the winter weather makes it too difficult to use.

Acheron Road will be closed on 10 April and re-open on Labour Day weekend in October.
