WELCOME TO TARRAS

Tarras is a thriving and productive farming, horticulture and viticulture area. It is one of the driest areas in New Zealand, with annual rainfall of between 300 and 500 millimetres. It spans the world in its reach with merino wool, award winning pinot noir wines and striking landscapes.
The Lindis area was the site of the first gold rush in Otago when gold was found in the Lindis River in 1857.

Situated on State Highway 8, Tarras Village is less than 30 minutes drive from both Cromwell and Wanaka. To the north lies the Lindis Pass and Omarama, 83 kilometres away.

The vast open space includes a superb vista which takes in the Dunstan Range to the east and the Pisa Range to the west. To the south is a great view looking down the Cromwell Valley, north east to the St Bathan's Range and north west to the mountains and Matukituki Valley.

The fat controller, having strewen chaos and stress over central otago with his legacy plans for an airport at Tarras, has now upped sticks and slithered off to a new job, avoiding any future responsibility for the effects of his project.
His minions who are enacting his wishes will also most likely not be around when the shit hits the fan.

"Christchurch Airport chief executive Malcolm Johns has resigned and will take up a chief executive role at Genesis Energy in March 2023.
Johns has been the boss of Christchurch Airport since January 2014 and is currently one of the highest paid public sector chief executives. In 2019, his salary was $836,360." - Stuff
