These are some of the best New Zealand has to offer, so living here would be a rewarding, fulfilling and enjoyable experience. If you get a longing for the city, Dunedin city is only a one hour drive away, or if you are seeking a visit further afield the Dunedin International Airport is just 45 mins away. And there is so much more to explore on Balclutha’s doorstep (including Queenstown).
