Promote Dunstan is a small group of volunteers promoting the area from Earnscleugh and Clyde to the Manuherikia. It is a non-profit incorporated society with members developing and encouraging various activities and events which promote the area to the benefit of residents, businesses, and visitors.
Within the group’s area of interest are three of the most authentically preserved and significant gold rush settlements in New Zealand – Ophir, St Bathans and Clyde. The Group is becoming more involved in the identification and preservation of heritage sites and is working alongside other agencies to achieve this by promotion, fund-raising, purchase, and management before these sites are lost to future generations.
We have a web site full of old and new photographs of the region and full details of walks around Clyde, Ophir and St. Bathans. We are also responsible for well known annual events such as the annual Clyde Wine and Food Harvest festival, held each Easter Sunday in the main street. Visit our website!
