Little Towns in Central Otago, New Zealand

Arrowtown-The Fairytale Town in The South of New Zealand

Sitting on the basin of the Arrow River, this small town was once a gold mining town. Nowadays, it's one of the most visited tourist attractions in the South. There are about 2,500 residents but a variety of facilities such as airports, hospitals, museums, golf courses, ski resorts, and entertainments. It's a completely fascinating place to visit and experience gold mining along the river. If you're lucky, you can find gold 😃.

Arrowtown is stunning all year round, especially autumn season when poetic orange-yellow colors cover every corner. No camera can precisely capture its spectacular beauty. If you plan to make an autumn road trip in the South, Arrowtown is absolutely not missed.

Roxburgh- Little Charming Town in Central Otago, New Zealand

I came to this beautiful little town in early 2018 for fruit season picking during my working holiday time in New Zealand. Living here for a month, but I had so much fun and priceless memories. The scenery of the region was absolutely breathtaking, and the people were very hospitable with big smiles.

Locating in the lovely Teviot Valley and about 133 Km away from Queenstown, Roxburgh is a tiny remote town where there more than 600 people living there. The region is famous for the best fruits in the country like cherries, apricot, apple, blueberries, etc. That's the reason why it becomes an ideal place for many backpackers seeking seasonal work.

I quickly settled at Commercial Hotel Roxburgh once arrival. The friendly, family-run hotel was built in 1894 and a local man named John. He's one of the kindest people I've ever known

There are numerous surrounding hills and magnificent scenes to check out.

There is a small nice peak (few steps walking from town) with a fabulous overlook of the village. The locals seem go to bed after 5pm 😃 all quiet

Can't remember exactly the name of the river but it's somewhere around the town😃

Summer is the best time here. The sky is still bright until 9 pm, so we have plenty of time to rest and chill outside after work.

I made a short stop at these beautiful towns and had some great shots though. These small towns have only a few shops and eateries but more modern and crowded than Roxburgh. There are many things to see and do in both towns that I will definitely come back here next time. The distance between the 2 areas is 24 km. It was well worth the time visiting these stunning little towns and discovering more about the Central Otago region of New Zealand.

Central Otago of NZ was one of the most favorite and memorable places that I have been to. After a few travel journeys and years later back home, I still miss all the amazingness in this stunning country.

Thank you @ecency. Love it :)

How was the ambiance and the atmosphere there? Was there anything a bit off or wiered when you were roaming around? Maybe I was talking about what a first timer experienced coming into a foreign land. Well, don't mind me. I'm still messing up on my thoughts. I can't find the right words to ask. 😅

No worries. Interesting questions. Oh yes, I was a bit confused about direction and language when I first went abroad 😃. When you live there for a while then you will get used to everything. Challenge but a great experience. I love the atmosphere in NZ very clean and fresh, sometimes 0% pollution, not like Manila or Ha Noi :((. It's easy to move around the country if you can drive.
Thank you for checking this out and have a great day !!

...wonder if you can apply that feeling and will to adjust when you're venturing other stuffs.

What a gorgeous little place to be doing fruit picking the problem with me doing fruit picking it would all end up in my belly and not the basket 🤣

local man named John, haha...John certainly gets around 🤣🤣

Oh yeah, big, quality and fresh fruits almost go into the picker's belly first 🤩 haha so I ate the most expensive cherries and blueberries before they are packed and sold in the supermarket ..:)
Those who name John are almost kind and nice 🙂

Haha, just like me I knew you would be doing that you naught girl 🤣

Awww, your to nice 😊
