Naseby is a small town in the Maniototo area of Central Otago. The historic township is known for great ice skating, heritage hotels and hiking around the old goldfields.

Naseby nestles in the foothills of the Mount Ida Range in Central Otago. Originally a gold mining settlement named Parkers, it can be very hot during summer. But it’s the ice skating and curling capital of New Zealand in winter.

A commercial outdoor rink operates from June to August. And you can also skate on natural ice at the Centennial Pond. The indoor curling rink offers all-year-round ice.

Other local attractions include golf, hiking or biking the Goldfields Heritage Trail, and fishing for trout at the dam. Accommodation options include a holiday park, historic hotels, holiday cottages and private lodges.
