Market days in Clyde

Market days in Clyde
Alexandra, in the heart of Central Otago, has its origins in gold mining, starting its life as a town that sprang up during the Central Otago Gold Rush of the 1860s. Situated at the junction of the Clutha and Manuherikia rivers where SH 8 from Cromwell and SH 85 merge, the area is now famous for its world-class wine (particularly Pinot Noir), stone fruit, fine merino wool, and the Central Otago Rail Trail. The area is also home for a diverse range of cycling from down hill (5,000ft hills) to meandering trails alongside rivers.
Hire bikes are available from one of six speciality bike shops in the area.

The climate produces hot summers and cool crisp winters. The area’s diverse scenery includes orchards, dredge tailings, lush valleys, parched schist slopes, spectacular spring blossom, and many lakes and ski fields. Alexandra is an ideal holiday location.

History buffs may be interested in visiting the historic Shaky Bridge, The Old Court House and The Old Bridge, or travelling to the former gold mining town of Clyde. View the huge Clyde hydro dam, sample fine Pinot Noir at a local vineyard, take a 4WD tour through the beauty of the back country, or go fishing on the banks of one of the region’s majestic rivers.

Alexandra is also positioned on the Otago Central Rail Trail, the 151km former rail corridor between Middlemarch and Clyde, which offers cyclists and walkers rugged and rocky landscapes, wide blue skies, stunning cloud formations, magnificent viaducts, and many stone bridges and tunnels. Also part of the new Roixburgh Gorge Cycle Track can be ridden or walked from Alexandra.
