Visit Kurow, nestled comfortably between the great Waitaki River and the magnificent St Mary's mountain range in the Waitaki Valley. 


Kurow in New Zealand is the geographic hub between Christchurch, Dunedin, Queenstown and Oamaru
and is a vital stop on the exciting new Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail. 

Enjoy Kurow accommodation; a stay in an historic cottage, a secluded home under the mountains, or a true kiwi style bach or crib. Kurow is a South Island pioneer township situated in North Otago. 

The Waitaki Valley encompasses the impressive braided Waitaki River, Lake Waitaki, Lake Aviemore and Lake Benmore, and a number of peaceful and friendly villages along the way. Visit Duntroon,
Otematata and Omarama on your trip to or from Kurow. 

Absolutely breathtaking ......
