The Clutha District is supported by a strong farming and agricultural industry with some of the country’s leading companies such as Fonterra and Silver Fern Farms having bases here. Forestry is another key contributor to our economy. 

The district is growing rapidly as a visitor destination, with many visitors heading to The Catlins and the Clutha Gold Trail which goes through Lawrence.

There are a wealth of opportunities to set up your own business, or join a workforce that is flexible and friendly. We want the district to grow and passionately promote Clutha as the best place to live, work, invest and visit.

Milton is fast becoming an important industrial hub, while Balclutha remains an epicentre for primary sectors like farming. Tapanui continues to be a real rural success story.
