Twizel – A Great Place To Be

If you like to be in a place that always feels like home and provides the safety and security that only a small town can offer, all the while remaining open to the potential and possibility that the world has to offer, then Twizel is the place for you.

Sport & Adventure

If your interests are in the outdoor lifestyle, Twizel gives you close proximity to well established ski fields or  lakes. The local surroundings provide excellent hiking and walking opportunities, with some fantastic mountain biking trails.

We also have some great golfing in the area with a nine hole golf course in the centre of the town, and some of the most exceptional fishing the country has to offer.

If you prefer the indoor life, we also have plenty to offer with new indoor sports facilities – a well equipped gym and a climbing wall.

If your interests are a little more laid back there is great local shopping with plenty of places to eat some of our delectable local cuisine, entertainment and fantastic coffee around every corner. You certainly won’t miss the creature comforts of the city.


Our small town comes with its own ever growing economy. There are plenty of constantly expanding, locally owned family businesses that are always looking for new faces. There are at least two big business players employing a vast number of people.


This little piece of paradise has education facilities to cater for all ages; its own school from Year 1 to Year 13, a Kindergarten and an Early Childhood Learning Centre.

Our unique environment means more personal and hands-on learning with smaller class sizes than most schools. But in saying that, our connection to the outlying areas means that children needn’t miss out on the learning opportunities that the city schools offer.


This small town is magically surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers and trees, granting you the most beautiful and incomparable sights you may ever see.

Twizel offers an idyllic lifestyle without missing out on the luxuries of the city life, together with safety and security for your family. Most of all, if you want to go where everybody has a friendly smile, then Twizel is the place for you.
