Swimming HoleThings to DoInstagrammable spot
Central Otago is one of New Zealand’s top areas to visit, but tucked away within is the old mining town of St Bathans. The town's long and interesting history provides some great local yarns, and its historic pub offers a charming place to have a drink or meal at.
However, it's the stunningly blue swimming lake that is what makes this place a summer gem! This 800m long waterhole is ringed by stunning white cliffs offering an oasis from the summer heat.
