Central Otago

Drive time: 1 hour from Queenstown Airport

East of Queenstown, Central Otago offers a golden landscape of rugged mountains, lakes, and rivers dotted with beautifully preserved old gold-mining towns, and a continental microclimate that produces an abundance of fruit and some of the world’s finest wines. 

This is a great place to cruise around the many vineyards, buy fresh produce from the orchards, pedal the network of cycle trails, play golf at one of the country courses, enjoy fishing and watersports or opt for some high octane adventure at Highlands, New Zealand’s premier motorsport park.
