If youíre new to the Mackenzie Twizel experience: A bit of history
Built in the late 1960ís, early 70ís to house the workers for the Upper Waitaki Power Scheme, it was to be a temporary housing village
but in 1984 the village was gifted to the Mackenzie District Council by the government and since then Twizel has evolved into the
bustling tourist retreat it is today.
Twizel is a major accommodation hub on the Alps to Ocean cycleway.
Easy access to the Twizel Loop walkway, bike track and river.
Within the area are Lakes Ruataniwha, Benmore, Ohau, Pukaki for all your water activities.
Excellent fishing is available both in the canals and the numerous rivers and ponds that sport Salmon, Rainbow and Brown Trout.
