The Central Otago Golden Triangle

The Central Otago Golden Triangle

Where the borders of Wanaka, Cromwell & Queenstown meet. It's not just a round trip to be done in a day, its full to the brim with amazing places to see, extraordinary places to eat, awesome activities to do and it’s safe to visit and live. Everyone is in love with the Golden Triangle.

Let’s talk about the weather, we wouldn't be Kiwis if we didn't, one day I'm wearing T-shirt & jandals, the next we are up the mountain for one more ski after an epic dump of snow.

Work hard and play hard is the golden triangles motto!

Be it real estate, tourism, construction, or retail, everyone is working hard to keep the Golden Triangle beaming, not only for New Zealand, but for the rest of the world.

Everyone is busy, builders are booked out for months, tourism is establishing a strong independent domestic market, even in these unprecedented times we have new properties propping up everywhere.

You need at least a night in each town & its’ a good idea to do this whether you are coming for a holiday or deciding to come and live here!

It doesn't have to be expensive either, everyone is gearing up for alert levels to be lessened and borders to open.

Real estate agents are selling everything that comes to market in record time, with more coming to the market every day now that spring has arrived.

Here is how we do the triangle... Drive Queenstown via Arrowtown and Lake Hayes to Cromwell via the Gibbston Valley to Wanaka and back down the crown range or go the opposite way the choice is yours!
