Enjoy the eateries, wineries, parks, artists’ studios, golf course and modern facilities of Alexandra, a popular holiday destination and Central Otago’s thriving commercial and cultural centre. Visitors and locals can always tell the time of day in Alexandra by one of the world’s most unusual clocks, standing 11 metres wide on a rock face high above the town.
Lake Roxburgh Village
Lake Roxburgh Village offers an insight into the building of one of New Zealand’s important hydro dams. It is also a stepping off point for exploring Lake Roxburgh. The lake is ideal for water sports and well stocked with both brown and rainbow trout. The Village has quality accommodation and dining.
Roxburgh is a stunningly beautiful fruit growing hub and recreational paradise 30 minutes south of Alexandra in the Teviot Valley. It is flanked by rocky, tussock-clad high country and nestled on the mighty Clutha River. The valley always looks spectacular whether in full spring blossom or blanketed in autumn’s golden and red hues.
