Milton is a town with a passionate local community which boasts some great independent shops ranging from a butcher to quirky second-hand stores.
Milton is at the core of the Bruce Ward in the Clutha District, and is the main entryway to North, South and Central Otago.
Ancient whale and dolphin fossils and a stunning lookout over Lake Waihola await just 9 kms north east from town.
While Mount Stuart Reserve up the Manuka Gorge Highway (State Highway 8) was a popular picnic spot way back in the 1870s and is still a firm favourite with freshwater fishing as well.
Milton’s main landmark is still the gothic-inspired Tokomairiro Presbyterian Church which was built in the 1880’s and has category one listed status with Heritage New Zealand.
You can get a bird's eye view of town by walking up the McNally track.
