Welcome to the Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust Website

The Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust (OGHT), aims to develop, represent and promote the historical sites, trails
and events of Otago.

Take a trip back through a golden era of New Zealand’s history in the South Island’s scenic Otago region. The romance and adventure of the gold rush days is easy to recapture in this rugged landscape which still bears the signs of the goldminers’ struggles to win their fortunes by striking it RICH.

Many New Zealand families can trace their first connection with New Zealand from these early endeavours.
