“Popular fishing spot in Summer and curling rink in Winter.”

Just south of Oturehua is the Idaburn Dam. When winter weather conditions are freezing, the dam hosts the ancient curling (ice sport) Bonspiel tournament. Witness true Scottish curling traditions as 20kg granite stones are slid over smooth ice. Afterwards, a Curlers Court holds a secret ceremony to induct new members into the fold.

The Idaburn Dam is also a popular fishing spot and an adjacent paddock hosts the popular Brass Monkey Motorcycle Rally, where riders travel in often freezing, June temperatures.

Oturehua reflects its people’s triumph over adversity – a place where tradition and farming ingenuity are still a way of life.
