The seaside fishing village of Taieri Mouth is nestled in the folds of the South Otago coastline.
It has impressive beaches, cliffs, and an island just offshore which can be walked to at low tide.
The Millennium Track entrance is off Riverside Road along the Taieri River. You can walk all the way to Henley and then return or walk up half way to a point where can see John Bull Gully and sit on the bench overlooking the Taieri Gorge. "Magnificent views". Another shorter easier track is Picnic Gully track with the entrance close to the fishing wharf... Go in the early evening and you may see Glow Worms.
There is something for everyone at Taieri Mouth boating, kayaking, sailing and fishing on the River.
We do not have any businesses in Taieri Mouth but we do have a full primary school. That is a focal point of the Taieri Mouth community. The School puts out a newsletter at least once a month and that includes community notices. In the community they have a plumber an electrician, a couple of IT people, two architectural drafts people, four builders, roofers a lock smith an excavator and many more people with unique skills. The local Leitch Memorial Hall has a craft afternoon, Pilates,yoga, indoor bowls, and exercise classes for men. The Hall can be hired for weddings, funerals, birthday parties, any other celebrations or meetings.
