Destination Promotion

We are the Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO), Destination Clutha. We work with local businesses, including tourism operators, accommodation providers, retailers and the service sector to promote Clutha as a unique destination. Our role is to coordinate, facilitate, motivate and develop the marketing of the Clutha District.

Live and Work

We have a strong focus on the attraction of business and skilled people to the Clutha District through a targeted marketing campaign called Clutha Country Live and Work. This means more potential customers for our members and a larger pool of people for them to recruit from.
