Queenstown Revisit Part 4 – Old Cromwell

You will not have really been to Cromwell if you have not visited the ‘Old Cromwell’. Cromwell is a small town established in mid 1800’s during the Gold Rush in Central Otago. Two rivers, Kawarau and Clutha, meet Lake Dunstan here.

This ‘Old Cromwell’ bits have been reconstructed with historic buildings relocated to the present site in Melmore Terrace. The Grain & Seed Store is now a cafe. The ‘Old Cromwell” bakery is now housing an art gallery.

We had coffee here outside Grain & Seed Cafe where we could appreciate the view of the ‘old’ town on one side and Lake Dunstan/Kawarau River on another. It was nice and sunny day and it seemed several dog owners had lunch here at the cafe and parked their dogs outside.
