Balclutha is a town in Otago and is known locally as Clutha. It lies towards the end of the Clutha River on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand. It is about halfway between Dunedin and Invercargill.

Balclutha is bisected by the mighty Clutha River, which is the largest waterway in New Zealand by volume. The river is an important part of the town’s history - it encouraged farmers to the area and brought prosperity with the discovery of gold. As the largest town in South Otago and the gateway to the Catlins coast, Balclutha has a range of shops and services. The Clutha River is open for salmon and trout fishing all year round. If you need to stretch your legs, the Blair Athol Walkway starts at Naish Park and takes you along the banks of the Clutha River to the Blair Athol farm. For a taste of country life, try a local farmstay.
