Central Otago is renowned for a lifestyle that encourages outdoor pursuits. These lifestyle opportunities are made possible by the superb climate, generous endowment of rivers and lakes and some of the most spectacular mountains in the country. Whether your interests lean to fishing, golf, four-wheel driving, mountain biking, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, walking or exploring the remains of the gold-mining days, it is immediately accessible in Central Otago. 

The climate and emphasis on outdoor opportunities also encourage family activities. Central Otago is also developing a thriving café and restaurant scene centred on the wineries. Central Otago produces some of the best wines in the country, especially the pinot noirs.

There is no rush hour at the end of the Central Otago day. Commuting distances are generally short and the roads are seldom crowded. While winter driving demands care and attention, the long daylight hours over summer and autumn make for safe and enjoyable driving.
