Head to Bannockburn for a selection of superb wineries, bike or stroll around the edge of majestic Lake Dunstan to the settlement of Lowburn or take a short drive to the Bendigo area where you will find the charming village of Tarras famous for it’s vineyards, mountain biking tracks and cafes. There is so much to see, experience and enjoy here!
Cromwell’s central location between the Lindis and the Haast passes makes it the perfect ‘hub’ between the nearby towns of Wanaka, Queenstown and Alexandra. In winter, skifields such as The Remarkables, Coronet Peak, Treble Cone, Cardrona and Snow Farm are all within comfortable driving distances.
