Loved it

We drove from Clarks Junction to Paerau to Patearoa to Ranfurly. It was so cool, this part of the road is easy and should be ok in a 2WD in summer and dry conditions, we were in an AWD. The scenery is awesome. I love Central Otago.

First class off-road adventure with spectacular views

Old Dunstan Road is an unpaved road starting at Clarks Junction and passing Lake Poolburn en route to Moa Creek. It’s great fun to drive in dry weather conditions but not recommendable during rain. There are a few fords to cross, thus better use a 4WD. The road passes through a spectacular landscape with ever changing views some of which made it into the second part of the LOTR trilogy. The rock formations are awesome. Toward the end, the road passes Lake Poolburn which was another movie site for LOTR. An absolute must-see for LOTR fans and a great day trip for 4WD travelers.
