Alexandra - 4 Seasons.
It's known as the hottest, driest and coldest town in New Zealand, and it's because of those extremes that Alexandra, in Central Otago, is a popular destination for national and international visitors. Whether it be during the heat of summer or the cold, crisp winter days, Alexandra has four distinct seasons and is a unique place to visit at any time of the year. Visitors can enjoy the many eateries, wineries, parks, artists’ studios and the golf courses Alexandra has on offer. If you enjoy getting out into the wide, open spaces, there are many opportunities for recreation including boating, swimming, fishing or exploring the hills and valleys by foot, mountainbike or four-wheel drive. Alexandra is the heart of Central Otago and is situated at the junction of State Highway 8 and State Highway 85.
