|Cromwell Old Town|
Tuesday, December 25, 2012
We set out to explore the sights of Cromwell in the morning. This, it turns out, is not a time-consuming activity. The notable feature is an area called Cromwell Old Town; this is a series of buildings from the old town centre, which were rescued and rebuilt on higher ground, when the town was flooded and Lake Dunstan created with the building of the Clyde Dam, built across the confluence of the rivers Clutha and Kawarau in the 1990s.
We stopped for a coffee in the café - indoors as it was sweltering outside - then walked back round the other side of town. And, er, that's about it. There's a small retail mall opposite our digs, and the aforementioned New World. We decided to seek out some lunch in Arrowtown.
