Welcome to Gore and Districts. 

We're not just a pretty place! 
Lots of interesting things happen around here.
From the late 1850s, settlers came and began transforming the land into what we see today. As in other rural areas, our local show has celebrated this connection to the land. The show is now approaching its 130th year. 

Today, Gore is a thriving, attractive town, sitting picturesquely on the banks of the famous Mataura River, which wends its way through some of New Zealand's most attractive and productive farmland. 

Welcome to the real NZ heartland!
