Central Otago

Moonscapes, powerful rivers, rolling hills, a mountainous backdrop and horticulture/viticulture have all helped Central Otago become a sought after location. It featured prominently in recent productions including In Light Between Oceans, Good for Nothing, In My Father's Den, 50 Ways of Saying Fabulous and Lord of the Rings.

Central Otago is an inspiring and timeless land of extremes – the coldest, driest part of New Zealand where the seasons are sharply defined. Summers are hot and low in humidity; winter mornings are often misty and windless and the nights freezing.

Central Otago is a short drive from the crew base in Queenstown.
