When the Clyde Dam was completed in 1992, it flooded the original Cromwell village including the town centre, 280 homes, six farms and 17 orchards. Many historic buildings were disassembled before the flooding and have since been restored as Old Cromwell Town. This pedestrianised zone sits beside Lake Dunstan and now showcases good eating and interesting galleries. Ask for the Old Cromwell Town Historic Precinct map at the i-SITE. During summer an excellent farmers market kicks off at 8am every Sunday.
