Big Ben lies between the Rakaia River to the South West, the Acheron River and Dry Acheron Rivers to the foot of Big Ben Range. Big Ben is the most extensively farmed dryland breeding block within the Coleridge Downs group. 

The main yards, Manager's house, cadet quarters, cook shop and office/classroom are all based at Big Ben. This makes Big Ben the central hub of all the farms. 

The lower flats of the farm are at approx 450 metres above sea level rising to approx 900 metres above sea level on the tops.

Big Ben is run by Charlie, with one second year cadet and other cadets where necessary.
