Ranfurly Campervan Hire Holiday
Ranfurly was established in 1898 as a railhead for the Central Otago railway line transporting both passengers and freight to the region’s gold fields. Some of Ranfurly’s architecture also dates back to the gold rush however many of its historic buildings were destroyed by fire in the 1930s and replaced with the simple modernist art deco architecture of the time.
Today, Ranfurly's beautiful buildings have been restored to their former glory and highlights include the Centennial Milk Bar, which now houses an Art Deco museum; and the popular second-hand Art Deco furniture and fittings store, attracting a regular stream of visitors.
Meanwhile the railroad has been transformed into a 150 km long recreational Rail Trail suitable for hiking, horse riding and mountain biking.
