If all had gone according to plan, Twizel wouldn't exist today.

This township was built in 1968 as the base for the Upper Waitaki Power Development, one of the most impressive hydro-electric power schemes in the southern hemisphere. The plan was to bulldoze the town once the construction work was completed, but having grown fond of Twizel during the 18 years of construction work, its inhabitants successfully campaigned to retain the town.

Twizel lived on in its role as a service centre for the surrounding area and has expanded its tourist role.

If you're an adventurer, Twizel is the nearest town to Aoraki/Mount Cook, but if you're not prepared to tackle New Zealand's highest mountain by foot, hop aboard a scenic flight or take in the mountain's majesty from ground level.

Skiers who make Twizel their base have the choice of four nearby skifields - Ohau, Dobson, Fox Peak and Round Hill - all with stunning scenery. Twizel's summer activities include fishing and boating, kayaking, 4WD, black stilt tours and tramping.
