"Passing through Alexandra." New Zealand Favorite Tip by worldkiwi

Favorite thing: Alexandra is the main town in Central Otago. It's a good place to stop for a break from driving if you're travelling between Dunedin and Queenstown. The information centre there can suggest places worth stopping at on the road. The Clutha River (NZ's second longest), passes through town and the road bridge makes a nice photo. You can see the remains of a much earlier bridge, now home to pigeons.
