Rich autumn colours fringe tranquil lakes and tussock covered hillsides roll on and on towards stunning alpine scenery. A favourite holiday spot for New Zealanders, the area comes alive in winter with ski and snowboarders and over summer anglers and boaties flock to sunny lakesides. Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with activities ranging from awe-inspiring scenic flights to horse riding in the rugged foothills. One of a kind attractions such as Puzzling World, Cinema Paradiso and a Fighter Pilots Museum along with a burgeoning wine industry in the neighbouring Otago region all add to the attraction of this gorgeous part of the south island and makes it well worth a visit.
