Wedderburn Tavern, Central Otago, New Zealand
Specialists in affordable family accommodation


Interior of Wedderburn TavernBuilt in 1885, the historic Wedderburn Tavern is situated in the heart of the Maniototo Plain on the Central Otago Rail Trail. Once the preferred stop-over for coaches and wagons, it is now the favourite destination for Rail Trail cyclists.

Located close to the summit and at the halfway point of the Rail Trail, Wedderburn is the perfect stop to explore and experience the uniqueness of Central Otago.

We offer southern hospitality, complemented by genuine country style menu and award-winning Central Otago wines. We also offer the best coffee on the Trail according to feedback.

Beer tapsYou can choose to stay in either authentic and rustic mudbrick accommodation or in our tavern bedrooms. Tariffs include continental buffet breakfast as well as coffee and tea during your stay. Group and family discounts available.

Why not extend your stay and experience Central Otago yourselves? Many historic sites and outstanding landscapes are within easy reach from Wedderburn. From Fleur's restaurant at Moeraki to the vineyards of Central Otago. Car and Van Rentals available in Ranfurly through Trail Rentals. Or base yourselves here and do the Rail Trail downhill both ways! So stay an extra day or two and see more of this wonderful place.
