Riversdale is the first of a number of towns that were visited on the Winton to Dunedin back route; i.e. via Raes Junction. A route that is used by the locals. This is a very good road and the scenery is delightful.

Riversdale is a small town on the route and also on Highway 94.

From a pure residency sense Riversdale has a lot going for it. Community centre, golf course and museum just to offer two key needs. The museum is a vintage machinery offer and is open at weekends.

The thriving rural community of Riversdale is experiencing population growth as people recognize the value of living in a pro-active community with strong infrastructure. Dairy farming, coal mining & off-shore oil exploration are all adding to the future economic growth of the region.

Riversdale is 30km from Gore and just 1.5 hours from Queenstown, Invercargill and Dunedin airports. The Riversdale Hotel is situated on State Highway 94 which is the scenic route between Dunedin and the tourist regions of Te Anau and Milford Sound.

Riversdale has a two active churches and a War Memorial that is close to the main village activities.
