Since 1991, the Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust has organised the annual Cavalcade, an event for horse-riders, wagoners and walkers to trek across the hills and lowlands of Central Otago, re-tracing the steps and trails of the gold miners who sought their fortune in inland Otago, at the end of the nineteenth century.
Your golden adventure awaits, the hills beckon and the laughter will warm you.
Those who choose to become Trust members receive registration forms hot off the press with priority on their trail of choice for the first two weeks.
The Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust and the Cavalcade As a non-profit organization, the Otago Heritage Goldfields Trust aims to promote, preserve and present the gold mining heritage of Otago to public audiences. As a self-funding event, the Cavalcade and their trails are budgeted at cost. Hence, all fees are directed towards paying for administrative, catering, host town and landowner costs. Your participation in the Cavalcade supports the Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust.
