The people of Central Otago have a strong sense of “Love of Place” and are proud to share their place with visitors. They also desire a balance between the environment, community and tourism. This is a place where respect for the land prompts sustainable solutions. Tourism Central Otago achieves this balance through a Destination Management policy – a “whole of community” approach. It’s about working together to protect what is special in this place. Maintaining effective working partnerships between all the communities and businesses involved in tourism helps to ensure a sustainable future.
