Welcome to the Gore District

Gore is central to the best of the South Island’s natural landscapes and offers fantastic lifestyle opportunities. Whether you want to base yourself here for a holiday, set up business, or live here, you’ll enjoy a relaxed pace of life with all the sporting and cultural facilities you’d expect to find in a big city. We call it rural city living.

Housing is affordable, and we don’t have traffic lights let alone traffic jams! Indulge your passions, spend time with the family, your new giant Otago-Southland backyard beckons.

Between art, country music, vintage aircraft and bootlegging whiskey, we sure have a range of niche attractions. Gore is the perfect place to experience authentic Kiwi culture in a rural setting, and a great place for an affordable family holiday.


Agriculture may be at the forefront of Gore’s economy but it’s not the whole story. Niche Gore businesses are exporting globally, tourism potential is virtually untapped and with ultra-fast broadband available from June 2018 a whole new range of possibilities opens.
