Balclutha is Gaelic for “town on the Clyde” and is situated on the bank of the mighty Clutha River, New Zealand’s largest river. The Clutha and its tributaries provided much of early Otago wealth through the recovery of gold. Today, the river provides opportunities for trout and salmon fishing as well as many boating activities which are also popular at the nearby historic town of Kaitangata, which provides camping and has a salmon hatchery.
