Historic Cromwell town

Step back in time with a visit to Old Cromwell town – When the Clyde dam was completed in 1990, Cromwell’s main street disappeared under Lake Dunstan. Following that some of the historic buildings dating back to the gold rush of the 1860’s were saved or lovingly rebuilt on higher ground, creating the Cromwell Heritage Precinct.

Now filled with cafes, a Gallery, Museum and shops all on the shore of beautiful Lake Dunstan and the cycle track.
