Welcome to the website of the Beaumont Residents Group.
Beaumont is a small town nestled in the foothills of Otago, in the South Island of New Zealand. Located in a fertile valley on the banks the Clutha River, Beaumont is the gateway to Central Otago, and is 106 km from the city of Dunedin.
We have lived with the threat of hydro dams since the 1940s. Time and again there have been proposals that would submerge our community, our homes, our history and our identity. Despite the toll on our lives and on our families, and the lack of investment in our town, we have endured, and we are still here ... we continue to fight.
This website is for Beaumont, and all our supporters. It shows our activities and our people, past and present. It records our worthy heritage, and it shows a community keen to promote the 'Jewel' of the Clutha District ...
