The Nevis Valley, a vast area in Central Otago with a rich gold mining history

The Nevis is one of my favourite haunts, close to Wanaka, that never fails to surprise with it’s variety and deep sense of history.

If you’ve lots of time too and a 4wd, it is a great way to get to-and-fro from Southland to Central Otago…
