About Central Otago
The natural unassuming splendour of Central Otago is a major draw card. Inland, the rolling golden hills, textured with schist rock formations, resemble oil paintings; whilst the wild Otago coast is a haven for bird and marine life.
The region's best known visitor attraction is the Otago Central Rail Trail. The popular trail is a stunning 150km track that follows the old railway line between Middlemarch and Clyde. This 3 to 5 day tadventure is purpose-built for mountain bikers, walkers and horse riders, and is a truly unforgettable experience.
