Central Otago

about the region


Second only to the Khumbu valley in summiters of Everest per capita, mountainous, varied and beautiful. Central Otago is a popular destination for domestic and international tourists, alike. Those that are fortunate enough to live among its stunning mountains and lakes consider themselves very lucky. Opportunities for recreation are limitless, with more than enough rock climbing, mountaineering and skiing to last several lifetimes.

The section

The Central Otago Section has only been recently established as an offshoot of the Otago Section. Thus it is an exciting time to get involved.



Keep an eye out for details. While meetings are not scheduled for a specific time and place, there will be regular social meet-ups.
