Central Otago Loop January 2000

This loop ride around the centre of the Otago Province of the South Island offers lots of variety. It is a fairly gentle 524km ride which offers plenty of places to explore and a some fantastic scenery. We split the trip into 7 days, but you will want to spend a few days in Queenstown at least. Queenstown is New Zealand's number one visitor destination and it has lots to offer everyone. We used B'n'B, camping ground cabins and motels for accommodation on this trip. All of the places we visited are good places to explore and enjoy.

Day 1: Dunedin Airport to Balclutha, 45km
Day 2: Balclutha to Gore, 73km
Day 3: Gore to Kingston, 122 km
Day 4: Kingston to Queenstown, 46km
Day 5: Queenstown to Alexandra, 72km
Day 6: Alexandra to Milton, 124km
Day 7: Milton to Dunedin, 42km
