The Shearers Quarters once stood in Turangi, where it was a ski lodge and it was transported to the Ookapu Station in the early 1980s. During this time it was the shearing gang's main accommodation while they worked at the Ookapu Station. The former set up of the Shearers Quarters had a separate sleeping and toilet block for men and women.
