Central Otago - Accessible/Easy Access Accommodation & Activities

Central Otago is a wonderland for anyone with mobility difficulties who enjoys the easy option of sitting in the car, visiting interesting places and looking at scenery. From the adventure buzz of Queenstown, to the slightly toned down adventure buzz of Wanaka, to the peace solitude and rich history of places like Naseby and St Bathans in the wide open spaces of the Maniototo. And for many travellers coming from the north it is a convenient end point after travelling the spectacular scenic highway from Tekapo past Mount Cook.
