Central Otago gold

Central Otago gold

Our work often offers the opportunity to indulge our passion for New Zealand history. Nearly two decades’ association with leading publishers Bridget Williams Books and Awa Press has given us a chance to work closely with historians, journalists and other non-fiction writers. Recently, in our capacity as travel essay writers, we’ve had a chance to share our country’s history with different audiences – locals and travellers interested in easy-to-read, potted histories of New Zealand’s places and people.

Working with Central Otago District Council, Sarah researched and wrote a 3000-word essay on the Central Otago gold industry – from its origins in the 1860s gold rush, through the first half of the twentieth century when hulking great dredges still worked the banks of the Clutha Mata-au River.

As we write this we have started working on our next story for Central Otago District Council’s ‘regional identity’ project: the story of ‘Central Cycling’.
