Embark on a journey through the wine country, where you can sample some of the world's finest Central Otago Pinot Noir and take in the breathtaking scenery. Explore the rich heritage of Cromwell, including remnants of its gold-mining past, at the historic Cromwell Heritage Precinct. As you wander through this charming area, you will discover boutique shops, art galleries, and cosy cafes that are sure to warm your heart.
When summer arrives, make your way to the shores of Lake Dunstan, where you can swim, fish, boat, and enjoy water sports to your heart's content. And when winter comes, hit the ski slopes at one of the five ski fields within a comfortable driving distance.
