The Otago region is located in the south of New Zealand’s South Island. Over 31,000 square kilometres is home to just 211,700 people – more than half of them living in the region’s main town, Dunedin.

Otago’s colonial history is one of progress and prosperity. The region was settled by Scottish immigrants in the late 1840s as an outgrowth of the Free Church of Scotland. The settlers were guided by principles that were unique for the time, including the rights of women and workers. Early settlers farmed sheep and planted fruit orchards in Central Otago, and the province remained something of a wild frontier. Then, in 1861, gold was discovered near the Tuapeka River. Miners descended on Central Otago en masse, which led to the formation of new towns including modern-day tourist mecca Queenstown.

Dunedin was, for a time, New Zealand’s largest and wealthiest city, built on the steadfast nature of its Scots settlers and the prosperity of the region’s gold rush. Said wealth allowed the region to invest heavily in public works which drew a rush of immigrant workers in the 1870s. Dunedin is home to New Zealand’s first university, Otago University, founded in 1869. The city’s largest industry today is tertiary education, and Dunedin is widely seen as a student town. Over 21% of its population is between the ages of 15 and 24, 50% greater than the national average. Visitors to Dunedin enjoy an array of arts and cultural events, as well as impressive historic architecture. New Zealand’s only castle, Larnach Castle, is a popular tourist destination located 20 minutes from Dunedin.

Central Otago is known for its two major products: orchard fruit and award-winning wines. Its success in both is due in large part to the Central Otago climate’s extremes of hot and cold providing exceptional growing conditions. The region’s wine industry has exploded in the last 20 years in particular, with a more than tenfold increase in land under vine. The focus remains on quality wine rather than bulk production, and the region specialises in Pinot noir grapes and wine.

Otago is also home to the major tourist centres of Queenstown and Wanaka. Their proximity to several of New Zealand’s premiere ski fields, as well as magnificent scenery and a wide array of other outdoor recreation and tourism activities, bring a steady influx of visitors year-round from New Zealand and abroad. Queenstown in particular offers its visitors over 200 adventure tourism opportunities, as well as scenic tours, numerous festivals, and a base in the centre of the Central Otago wine region.

Some great feedback for Villa Veneer

"..long lasting looks and the security of solid cladding..." As a Platinum Homes' franchise holder for the Auckland/Manukau and Papakura/Franklin regions, we were introduced to a very exciting product called Villa Veneer. One of Platinum Homes' criteria is to build a very high quality home with the minimum of maintenance, long lasting good looks and the security of a solid cladding that will stand the test of time. We agree to use Villa Veneer on a number of homes including two showhomes. The fantastic positive response from the solid, brick like security cladding, but with the look of a weatherboard home, made this product a winner. You can have the peace of mind that unlike some forms of cladding, dark colours will not be affected by the sun's harsh treatment of a material such as wood. The look of Villa Veneer has really caught on around the country with many Platinum Homes' regions now using this innovative product on their showhomes, and all receiving, as we have, rave reviews on the look, durability and low maintenance required. Please check Platinum Homes' website or call into Karaka Harbourside and just see how great this product looks. - Dave

Great feedback for Allan Court Motel

“Best place to stay in Dunedin” We always stay here when we visit Dunedin. The rooms are very clean and beautifully furnished, the beds are very comfortable and the staff are really friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Very central to town, or if you are there to see someone in hospital, it is just around the corner. Another big plus is that though you are on the main road there is no traffic noise to keep you awake. -Kim O

Good things being said about Good Company Tours

My son & I booked Good Company Tours when we visited Dunedin on board the Celebrity Solstice in Nov 2013. We boarded a mini-bus at Port Chalmers without any waiting and enjoyed a short drive into the city centre. On the recommendation of our tour guide/driver Richard, we visited the Settlers Museum and various other city attractions before meeting up with Richard at 2pm for a terrific & comprehensive bus tour around Dunedin, from the Otago Peninsular, through the university, to Baldwin St , past historic schools & buildings & up to a look out before heading back to the ship .Richard was full of amusing anecdotes about Dunedin's history. We enjoyed the tour so much that when we returned to Dunedin only 11 days later on the Solstice, we booked again and added in a visit to Olveston House - just as enjoyable the second time!!!! - Gaimont

The compact baler is perfect for our operation and so far we have been very impressed with its performance. We had trialled a baler from another company and the Pioneer far surpassed it with price, compaction and the size of the finished bale. The machine was delivered with no fuss and the setup was very simple. We have not had any trouble with this machine and it is a welcome addition to our warehouse equipment." - Mamuel
