Cromwell Golf Club

Cromwell Golf Club (www.cromwellgolf.co.nz)

Cromwell’s golf course is further from the sea than any other in New Zealand but is built on genuine 'links' style terrain. The irrigated fairways are gently undulating, while plantings of marram grass penalise stray shots.

Trail Journeys

Trail Journeys (www.trailjourneys.co.nz)

Trail Journeys has been built up around the very popular Otago Central Rail Trail offering bike hire, complete guided packages, personal railtrail itineraries and transport associated with the railtrail. We can book your accommodation for no extra cost to you, have your bags moved each day and finally bring you back to your starting point once you've finished your adventure!

The Otago Central Rail Trail is a year-round recreational facility, designed for mountain bikers, walkers and horse riders (in parts). It is a public reserve and can be walked or ridden in either direction.

Cromwell Bowling Club

The Highlands Motor Park sports a brand new international standard 4.5km racing circuit where up to three tracks can be used at the same time. Try out the exciting go-carts where you can hurl yourself through corners at blistering speeds! If that isn't enough speed for you then how about taking a Fast Lap with a race driver in a Porsche GT3? Take the ride of your life at up to 200kph, you're sure not to forget that for a long time! Want to get behind the wheel yourself? Now you can in a Suzuki Swift full race car...

Old Cromwell

Following the construction of the Clyde Dam, Cromwell gained the beautiful lake Dunstan, but lost it's old town centre in the process. This history however has not been forgotten! Many of the original buildings from Cromwell's past have been restored or reconstructed and now house local crafts and cafes. There are wonderful shops and artists galleries as well as insights into the original businesses that occupied these meticulously restored buildings.

Old Cromwell is also home to the Central Otago Farmers Market held every Sunday from November to Easter.
