Welcome to the Waitaki Valley website
The Waitaki District
A visit to the Waitaki district is bound to be rewarding, no matter what time of year or what type of day. It is a place of wonder, with awesome valleys, majestic mountains, pristine lakes, raging rivers, unique wildlife and unbelievable scenery
The Waitaki district lies in the centre of the South Island of New Zealand, close to 45 degrees south - the parallel that is exactly halfway between the Equator and the South Pole.
The area is a popular spot for people who like fishing, and for boating enthusiasts, and a sports-person's paradise, thanks to the fabulous lakes on the Waitaki River. People flock from throughout New Zealand and overseas to enjoy the outdoor pursuits and tranquility.
Enjoy the friendly service of local businesses, and visit the arts and crafts. Picnic among the majestic mountains, rivers and lakes.
