Clutha Country is primarily supported by successful agricultural opportunities with many types of farming and forestry dominating the area’s economy. This rural way of life adds to the attraction of the area, and the tourism trade is growing markedly, attracting the traveller that likes an untouched paradise and prefers to explore beyond the beaten tourist track. Both these industries create a need for many other businesses and enterprises.
