Central Otago - heartland in the south of New Zealand

Central Otago is as much a place in people's hearts as a region outlined on a map. It's a special place. A place of holidays. A place touched by golden history. A place where nature's most powerful elements combine to create a unique and enchanting environment. A place where the worlds finest merino wool is produced.

'Central', as it is called by those that know it, is a land of riches. Rivers that once yielded gold now irrigate the soil and fuel the country. Towns built on the prosperity of yesterday are building futures based on the extraordinary resources all around them, without forgetting the precious heritage of their past.

There are many reasons to come to Central. From some of the country's best fishing to its top vineyards, the thrill of mountain biking through remote tussock to the leisurely pleasure of a stroll through wild mountain flowers. Arts, crafts, fine regional food. Jet boating, gold panning, ice skating outdoors on a clear winter's day. The satisfaction of a relaxed round of golf amidst some of the best scenery you can get. These are just a few of Central Otago's experiences.

Most visitors who come here never want to leave. But they take home treasured memories, and nearly always return. So discover this special place for yourself, and take away a piece of Central Otago in your heart.
