Clyde Things to Do

  • Alexandra to Clutha 150th Anniversary...

    Running beside the Clutha between Alex and Clyde is an 11.5km track. It is open to walkers and bikers with the Mountain Bike crew who give it the most action. There are lots of dips and rises, small bridges and fast straights to give you a fun ride no matter what your level. Bikes can be hired from several places for around $10 per hour or $35 per...

  • Central Otago Rail Trail

    The CORT runs from Clyde to Middlemarch on what was the old rail line opened back in 1891 or so and can be walked, done on horse or on a bike. The most popular by far is by bike and these can be hired at many locations. Due to the popularity of the trail I'd recommend that you book in advance.There are plenty of places to eat and drink on the way...

  • Central Otago Rail Trail

    This cycling or walking track was created after NZ rail ripped up the old rail lines in 1993.The track runs from Middlemarch to Clyde for 150kms and can be attacked from either end.There are many places to stay, at pubs, towns or tourist lodgings that have sprung up along the route. The track has created a major resurgence in many of the smaller...


Clyde Restaurants

  • Great place to rest and eat.

    It was very nice to find this cafe open on a Sunday, as we had just finished cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail. Finding this oasis oozing with ambience and friendly staff, sitting outside in the sun was just what the doctor ordered. The World Cafe is another example of where these small towns have reinvented their closed down bank buildings to a...

  • Old Post Office Cafe

    The Old Post Office Cafe is more than just a cafe having a full bar available and also open for evening dining. I stopped in here mid Cycle ride with the girls for coffee and muffins and was very happy with the quality of both. Being an old Post Office there are a few items of interest including old bank notes and banking items.

  • The Bank Cafe

    Based in the old BNZ bank building, the Bank Cafe is a really good spot to stop for a coffee and something to eat when in Clyde. The location in Sunderland Street is within the old precinct where you'll find the bulk of Clyde's historial buildings. The toasted sandwich was huge! My sister in law was very impressed indeed. The coffee was good and...


Clyde Off The Beaten Path

  • Old Dunstan Road

    This is now a 4WD track, especially in winter when it is generally closed from May to October.The old stage coach route from Dunedin to the Dunstan goldfields at Clyde takes a direct line from Clarke's Junction (from Dunedin / Mosgiel towards Middlemarch) and comes out at the Poolburn Dam in central Otago. It has around 120kms of rough dirt road...

  • Flyfishing

    I had never tried flyfishing before so while in the Otago region I thought that I'd give it a go and organised a full day trip with Dreamwaters. The region is famous for it's fresh water trout.Bruce Leitch was our guide for the day who picked us up from our accommodation and took us to all the best river locations and provided all our equipment...

  • Danseys Pass

    Named after a large run holder, William Dansey, this once well-trodden pass through tussock country links the Maniototo Plains and the Waitaki Valley. The towns of Duntroon to the north and Nasby to the south are at each end of the pass.The Pass itself is unsealed, narrow in places and can be closed by snow during winter.On the southern side, the...

    Dunstan Golf Club

    by fishandchips Updated Aug 2, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dunstan Golf Club has a very nice 9 hole course. The front and back nines share greens but often have very different tees. The course is generally on the short side but has some challenging bits with its tight fairways. The course was in good condition when I last played with both Tees and Greens is great shape.

    Cost is only $15 so it's a cheap way to have some fun.

    Equipment: You'll need to bring everything with you - there is no option to hire any items here.

    Me and Lilly (her first round ever) Nice views to the hills around Clyde
