Living in the Mackenzie District is an outdoor lovers dream. We are surrounded by mountains and lakes, cycleways and walking tracks and lets not forget the legendary fishing spots. Where else can you leave home and 5 minutes later be in the boat on the lake or within 1/2 hour be up the mountain skiing.
Mackenzie District offers a vast array of employment opportunities ranging from project managers in construction to managing a restaurant to beekeeping, all offering a great lifestyle, and there is potential for quick job progression in the Mackenzie.
The sense of community is strong in Mackenzie with each township having a network of community groups and sports clubs so you can join and make new buddies. Our schools offer small class sizes and the opportunity for different experiences like ski club every week in the winter.
Mackenzie is not far from Timaru, Christchurch or Queenstown if you need an urban fix, but want the tranquility throughout the working week.
