West Otago is the local name given to part of the region of Otago, New Zealand, lying close to the border with Southland. It is administratively connected to South Otago, but is geographically separated from it by a range of hills known as the Blue Mountains.

West Otago consists of rolling farmland and forested hills close to the Pomahaka River. The largest settlement in West Otago is Tapanui.
