Edendale

Edendale Mararua

Edendale was home to Southland’s first cheese factory, which produced its first cheese in 1882 and it was this which really led to the growth of the town. Although the township appears to have been laid out earlier, around the time the railway arrived in the area, in the 1870s.

Around 550 people now live in Edendale, which is home to the Fonterra Edendale plant, one of the region’s biggest employers. It is also well-known for its Crank Up day event, held since 1986.
