Winton’s Watertower

Winton is situated on the main highway between Invercargill and Queenstown, 30 minutes north of Invercargill

Winton is a town renowned for its friendly residents and beautiful gardens, picturesque historical buildings from the 1800s, and neatly set out residential housing.

The strength of the town is based on the diverse farming industry surrounding it including sheep, cattle, deer, dairy, crops and flowers. Intensive production and a moderate climate help produce meat and wool for the New Zealand export market. Sawmilling is the towns largest industry with both native and plantation forests being processed for national and export trade.
