About Cromwell

Cromwell was established by gold miners, but now its treasure is stone fruit. Explore nearby ghost towns and soak up the tranquil lakeside scenery. Located on the shores of Lake Dunstan, Cromwell has the appearance of a modern town, but its history stretches back to the gold rush days of the 1800s. This history is best experienced in 'Old Cromwell Town’, a feature attraction for visitors. In the 1980's and 90's Cromwell underwent a major transformation with the construction of the Clyde Dam power station. When the dam was completed in 1992, the valley behind it was flooded to create Lake Dunstan. As a result, the original site of Cromwell's historic business district at the junction of the Kawarau and Clutha Rivers now lies at the bottom of the lake.

"Gostaria de recomendar imensamente o passeio guiado sobre a história da escravidão no Imperio Português, que pude realizar com o excelente guia senhor Rui. O passeio permite conhecer a história da escravidão juntamente com a história política de Portugal. Ouvir essa parte da história ao longo de uma caminhada pelas ruas de Lisboa, visitando locais em que ocorreu, nos faz pensar e conhecer a história de uma forma diferente."
