Travel Tips for Twizel

Fairly

by pepples46

Fairly a tiny town is best known as service center and focal point for those who like good skiing at Mt Dobson on 2100m altitude, with a superb view over the Mckenzie Country.
Burk Pass makes for a stunning roundtrip in this area
the Pass is named after John Burke, who, after the trial of James Mckenzie for sheep stealing, settled in this vast area

TWIZEL

by pepples46

"not only a pretty face"

Twizel sprang to Life as a construction town in 1960, smack bang in the middle of the beautiful MCKenzie Country, Canterbury's finest region. the town takes its name from the nearby River Twizel, named by the first Surveyor- General of NZ, John Turnball Thompson..I looked it up!!
Twizel served as housing for the constration workers who developed the Upper Waitaki Power Station, serving a large area with electricity.
when the work was done and people moved on, a dying Township emerged the harsh enviroment, surrounding the Town made it an undisirable place, till.....a few year ago.City slickers discovered the good life there and -10C in Winter makes good wintersport conditions and sizzeling 30C in summer suddenly no problem.People from all over the country where interested to settle here and some from overseas.
Real Estate moved in and the properties sold like hot cakes.
Twizel is in again
