The Clutha District is home to a number of natural wonders and wildlife which we love to showcase to our visitors. We want to protect our precious land for all who live and visit our district to enjoy now and in the future.

    1. Stay longer
      Explore the Clutha District at a slow, relaxed pace. To get the most out of your stay here in Clutha, you will need at least a week, especially through The Catlins. Staying longer also enables you to truly immerse yourself (and less travel time).

    2. Give back to nature
      Why not offset your travel, by giving back? Earthlore Nature Tours and Activities in Owaka provides you with the opportunity to plant a tree (or two) to offset your travel. They also offer half day Give Back to Nature tours in which you will work on a local conservation project.

    3. Stay sustainably
      We are fortunate to be able to offer a variety of sustainable, eco-accommodation across the Clutha District including:

      Cascade Creek Retreat
      - this Retreat is completely ‘off the grid’ using solar and hydro power only, minimal technology among other environmental initiatives.

      Mohua Park Eco Accommodation
      – Environmental initiatives and sustainable choices at the property include waste reduction, energy and water savings, while encouraging their guests to participate in these environmental practices.

      Earthlore's Pekapeka Tiny House
      - Unwind in an eco-friendly environment with an abundance of Tui, Bellbird, Kereru and other native birds.

    4. The Clutha District has six Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations across the district.
