Living & Working in Gore

About Gore

Nestled on the banks of the Mataura River, the Gore district is a vibrant multi-cultural rural community with a population of just over 12,000.  With its close proximity to lakes, mountains, forests, rivers and the sea, Gore is the ideal place to live, work and play.

Gore started out as a traveller's stop in 1862, and is now the service centre of a large rural farming area.  It has grown into the country music capital of New Zealand and is home to the Eastern Southland  Gallery and the Hokonui Moonshine Museum.

Gore is one the best places in the country to raise children because of its safe, close-knit community, excellent schools and great sporting, recreational and cultural facilities.  We are only 45 minutes drive away from the main campus of the Southern Institute of Technology in Invercargill and 90 minutes away from the University city of Dunedin.

Housing in Gore is incredibly affordable. The median house price as of November 2016 was  $202,333. The average rental price for a 3 bedroom house as of April 2016 was about $230 per week.

There's no shortage of things to do. Gore is centrally located and close to the beautiful Southern Lakes and some of the worlds best scenic attractions including Queenstown - the adventure capital of New Zealand. We are also only an hour away from the sea and the attractions of the southern coast and Stewart Island. Try your hand at fishing, bungy jumping, tramping, white-water rafting, surfing, sky-diving, kayaking, ski-ing, or just relaxing.

If you're ready to slow down and achieve the work-life balance you've always wanted in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, please contact our CEO, Karl Metzler.
