Central Otago Rental Car Travel Itinerary

Discover the delights of Central Otago for your next holiday, seek out the friendly local towns, stunning rocky landscapes, growing art and craft culture and well-preserved gold heritage while indulging in the world class Central Otago wines and fresh seasonal produce.

Exploring the Central Otago region is best done by car, as there are very few public transport options allowing the freedom to really get out there and find your own way. Car hire is readily available from either Dunedin or Queenstown and also Christchurch if you are making an epic roadie out of it.
