Arts, Culture & Heritage



Central Otago is a land of riches - a special place, where nature's most powerful elements combine to create a unique and enchanting environment and the perfect natural canvas from which the many local artists and craftspeople draw their inspirations.

Oils to watercolours, pottery to photography, food to fashion – creativity is a natural phenomenon in this colourful world of difference that is Central Otago. Even the old stone cottages and contemporary buildings are designs borne of the landscape and schist rock.

Art galleries and craft shops can be found in the small towns, revealing the talents of local artists and the opportunity to take home a true piece of Central Otago. The Art Deco town of Ranfurly renews architecture of old and near the tiny township of Naseby you'll find the Museum of Fashion, a collection of couture from the 1960s and 1970s.

Retrace the gold rush through significant collections at the Alexandra and Cromwell Museums, along the Goldfields Heritage Trail and in the many smaller community museums found throughout Central Otago.

But keep exploring and you’ll find an endless supply of heritage and creativity, made in New Zealand… made with pride in Central Otago.
