Alexandra is a town in the Central Otago district of the South Island of New Zealand. It is on the banks of the Clutha River, on State Highway 8, 188 kilometres by road from Dunedin and 33 kilometres south of Cromwell.
Alexandra, established in 1862 in the gold mining era, is nestled where the Clutha Mata-au and Manuherikia rivers meet. ‘Alex’ as it’s affectionately known by locals, is a wine and fruit growing haven and home to a community that thrives on recreation and outdoor adventure. You'll also never forget the time, with the famous 11 metre tall 'Clock on the Hill' standing watch across the township.
