About this place

Getting there

From the Waianakarua River in the north to the coastal hills between Dunedin and Milton in the south. Inland: the Rock and Pillar Range, Manuka Stream near Macraes, Te Papanui Conservation Park in the Lammermoor/Lammerlaw Ranges, and reserves near Lawrence. 

Know before you go


Near the coast the climate is cool and moist with rainfall generally decreasing northwards. Inland the climate is drier but more extreme in temperature, as the landscape enters the upland transition zone between Coastal and Central Otago.
