The Altitude: 5,700 feet.


Set on 30 acres amid soft, sheep-speckled hills that look like the backdrop for a Masterpiece Theatre production of a Jane Austen heartbreaker, Otahuna Lodge is one of the finest examples of Queen Anne architecture in Australia.

The hotel also boasts a winery, restaurant, and pizzeria.

A remote, timber-clad lodge, via a series of gravel roads. Toast the long drive with a bottle of outstanding Central Otago Pinot Noir and chill out on the deck overlooking the inlet and the sheep ranch that clings to the precipitous, pea-green hillside across the way.

Boutique hotel with minimalist lithographs by local artist Ralph Holere and 53 light-filled rooms, overlooking Hagley Park.
