Situated on the south east coast of New Zealand’s South Island, Clutha welcomes production companies and was one of the locations for Wolverine.

The Catlins is the region’s hidden gem where miles of unspoiled coastline and winding roads make it a much sought after location for car commercials. Clutha’s rural way of life adds to the area's attraction – film-friendly people, picturesque countryside dotted with farms and dense forests and small, traditional towns. Buildings, bridges and meandering roads hark back to gold rush times fuelled by the mighty Clutha River – New Zealand's largest by volume.

The district's hub is Balclutha, spanning the river itself, while the city of Dunedin – capital of Otago – is just an hour away.
