Duntroon is a town established in the mid 1870s on the trout-laden Waitaki River. There are several historical sites to see here including the old jail, complete with stocks, the Duntroon war memorial and memorial oak tree, and Nicol’s Blacksmith Shop.

It operated as a smithy from the mid 1890s until the early 1970s and is still completely decked out with tools. Duntroon is also home to the Flying Pig Café and the Vanished World Fossil Centre where those of a geological bent will feel completely at home.

This is the first port of call for those wishing to explore North Otago’s ancient history, following the Vanished World Trail, a myriad of fossil sites, extinct volcanoes, mineral locations, and intriguing landforms, beginning right here in Duntroon.
