What's on in Central Otago

Central Otago is a land of contrasts - indeed the motto for this region is "a world of difference". From the scorching heat of the summer to crisp cold winters; golden grasses and autumn colours against the bluest skies you've seen; from the bustling and vibrant cities of Dunedin and Queenstown to the stark quietness of the great outdoors. You will be intrigued and fascinated by the vastness and uniqueness of this area. 

The region is renowned for its stone-fruit orchards and tourism and more recently also its deer farms and vineyards - Central Otago is the world's southernmost commercial wine production region. The resort town of Queenstown is known for its commerce-orientated tourism, and also as a centre for adventure tourism - activities such as skiing, rafting, speed-boating, bungy-jumping and paragliding to name just a few. The 150km track of the Otago Central Rail Trail is another popular tourist attraction. 

Geographically, the area is dominated by mountain ranges, glacial and snow fed lakes, and the upper reaches and tributaries of two significant South Island rivers - the Clutha and Taieri Rivers. 

A visit to this attractive region is sure to be memorable and rewarding and there are a couple of naturist accommodation options from which to explore the area in more detail.
