A picturesque town with gift shops, cafes, antique and old world stores.  A new chocolate and cake shop also has the town buzzing.  Lawrence was New Zealand's first gold rush town and its history can be discovered in the local museum and information centre.  Lawrence is in the Clutha region which has stunning walks, waterfalls and the unique Cathedral Caves which are one of the longest sea caves in the world.
