Tourism Central Otago

Central Otago is New Zealand's most inland region. It is also its hottest, coldest and driest. A fragmented schist plateau in a semidesert environment, Central Otago is a living museum, scattered with historic features preserved by a dry climate. This peaceful, powerful place of physical challenge and seasonal contrast has barely changed over centuries.
