Otago / Otakou

Otago’s magnificent and varied scenery is famous around the world, with tourists attracted to the towering mountains, sprawling ski-fields, deep alpine lakes and powerful rivers.

The region also enjoys a rich and diverse history which is highlighted in the main city of Dunedin and the region's many and varied small towns.

Otago's economy is driven by tourism, manufacturing, horticulture, agriculture and forestry.

Otago’s six councils, together with central government, have come together to work on a strategy to propel Otago into the future.

Kānoa – Regional Economic Development & Investment Unit has chipped in to support getting this strategy over the line.
