Forget about the weather forecast, it’s overrated after all. Invercargill’s elegant historic buildings and wide streets have a secret. The roar of an engine, the whiff of oil, vintage motorbikes and the adrenaline rush of digging very large holes with your own monstrous digger will excite anyone. Transport related museums, racetracks and speed create a one of a kind Invercargill experience. Together with a world class art gallery, one of New Zealand’s public parks of national significance there is something for everyone. Nearby hear stories of moonshine whisky and bootleggers on your way to marvel at where the wild roar of wildlife on ocean beaches.
The deep South is a world away from the buzz of tourist hot spots. Highlights embrace nature and outdoors with walks, mountain biking, fishing in crystal clear streams, kayaking the glacial fed rivers to wildlife encounters. For the dedicated tramper New Zealand’s great walks are a must do holiday adventure. Southland is where the Milford Track, the Routeburn Track and Kepier and Rakiura Track are found. Excite your senses with a 4WD into territory where the only crowd is yourself or stroll in small towns finding hidden heritage trails reflecting over 800 years of human history. Stunning magical alpine scenery, deep quiet still iced blue lakes and thundering waterfalls are tramping treats. Southland is an ideal place for a touch of luxury, a helicopter ride soaring over the two National Parks within Southland’s borders, Fiordland National Park and Rakiura National Park.
