A small New Zealand country town, but with all the amenities you would expect, situated close to some stunning scenery and Mt Cook.
Friendly people and the couple of restaurants we visited provided substantial basic meals at reasonable prices.
Twizel is on the main route between Christchurch and Queenstown. It is a good distance if you wish to split your trip.
Twizelnis close to Ohau ski field an also to Mount Cook. Twizel is by Lake Ruataniwha where there is a major rowing traing lake and where many regional and national events are held.
