Roxburgh & the Teviot Valley

People used to come here for the gold. Now they come for all the colours.

Roxburgh & the Teviot Valley

The warmer climes of the sheltered Teviot Valley, flanked by rocky tussock-clad high country, create a lush valley floor of green and gold farmland and orchards. Roxburgh, Ettrick and Millers Flat are all small towns in the Teviot Valley, blessed with world-class fruit, produce, farming and salt-of-the-earth folk who care deeply for their community, work together and always have time for a yarn.

Boasting two of the nation’s Great Rides (the Roxburgh Gorge and Clutha Gold trails) and an abundance of walking and back country mountain biking trails close by, you’ll need some good grub to fuel your adventures. Fortunately, Roxburgh is home to the family run and legendary Jimmy’s Pies. The recipe is kept under wraps their reputation runs wild.
