Bannockburn | Central Otago

A surprising oasis of vineyards, heritage sites and fantastic vistas. The surrounding area offers a chance to discover unique tastes of Central Otago, gold mining heritage and diverse recreational opportunities.

Explore and be inspired by working artists and galleries, then spend your afternoons tasting the flavours of Central. Bannockburn is home to a café, three restaurants, a range of cellar doors and tasting rooms.

The Bannockburn Sluicings offer a well-marked one-hour walk, which takes you past old gold diggings, tunnels, races and dams to the old stone buildings and original orchard at Stewart Town.

The area is also a great starting point for exploring deeper into the Nevis Valley. Drive to the top of New Zealand’s highest public road at Duffers Saddle. Walk, run or cycle the Carricktown Track and marvel at the Young Australian Waterwheel.

Wherever you go, you will be rewarded by expansive views of the Kawarau River, Pisa Range, Lake Dunstan, and the Dunstan Mountains.

Bannockburn offers a peaceful atmosphere, where you are free to unwind and to experience its beautiful, tranquil mix of old and the new.
