With Lake Dunstan on its doorstep, Cromwell, Central Otago is ideally placed as a base for recreational activities, picnicking, fishing, water-skiing, jetboating or just lazing the day away. The heritage town of Old Cromwell, located to the west of "The Junction" where the two arms of Lake Dunstan now meet, offers some fine examples of stone masonry. These reconstructed buildings are quiet reminders of Cromwell's gold mining and pioneering past. Here can be found replicas of the Cobb & Co Store, Seed and Grain Store, Belfast Store, stables, barn, cottages and artefacts, all part of a living museum development. Old Cromwell Town is also a perfect setting for artisans and cottage industries, where artists can be seen working in their studios and a wide range of Central Otago fine art and crafts enjoyed.
