Central Otago

Visitors to this environment reflect on their complex lives when they experience the clear and simple definitions of nature in Central Otago.

 Just an hour away and a world of difference, Lake Wanaka is within easy reach of Central Otago. Take a wine tour from Wanaka to Bannockburn and Cromwell and taste some world class Pinot Noir. 

Experience true solitude and get close to nature in an inspiring and timeless land. First time visitors are silenced and energised by this tumble of mountain, river, rock and tussock. See the grandeur of breathtaking vistas and be moved by their surging natural power. Central’s clear light brings mountains within an arm’s reach and displays a star-studded night sky. It is a place of extraordinary contrasts, our middle earth.

 Central Otago is a place where you relax, indulge and rejuvenate. Cycle the Otago Central Rail Trail, taste wines in amazing locations, try curling, play a round of golf, cruise the Clutha River, visit historic gold mining towns or just kick back and relax at one of the many boutique accommodation places.
