Otago New Zealand


Otago New Zealand
The history of the Otago Region is very rich and interesting. Its well-known for disputes between the different Maori tribes, the European Settlement and the gold mines. Dunedin, the main city of the region is well-known for its university and classical 19th century architecture. Due to its roots, you will feel a Scottish way of life there straight away. Otago offers some of the country's best fishing to its top vineyards, the thrill of mountain biking through remote tussock to the leisurely pleasure of a stroll through wild mountain flowers. Arts, crafts, fine regional food. Jet boating, gold panning, and ice skating outdoors are all on the menu.
