Butchers Dam map Butchers Dam, Central Otago

The rugged landscape of Central Otago is characterised by extreme weather, mountainous ranges and valleys and wild countryside. In this setting, wild thyme thrives. It has been a predominant feature of Central Otago since the days of gold mining by early settlers. Each spring (Sep-Nov) the rolling golden hills are overtaken by a vast purple carpet of fragrant wild thyme flowers – a spectacular sight indeed!
