Invercargill, the southern most city in New Zealand and Southland's commercial heart, is known far and wide for its hospitality to visitors and as the gateway to some of New Zealand's most beautiful scenery in the Catlins, Fiordland and Stewart Island.
If you are looking for peace and tranquility in the heart of the city, the Queens Park which is over 100 years old, 80 hectares of botanical gardens, 18 hole golf course in a parkland setting, childrens playground and water feature, are indeed an exciting new aviary!

A must for visitors, Invercargill is proud of its unique Museum. Housed under a spectacular pyramid-like roof, it features a large enclosure called a 'tuatarium', home to the ancient and beguilling native reptile, the tuatara. The Museum has recently opened the world's first sub-antarctic interpretation centre - "Beyond the Roaring 40's". Fascinating!

Visit the integrating Anderson Park, a beautiful Georgian style home; just a short drive from the city centre, was built in 1924 and is managed as an art gallery and venue for exhibitions. The grounds include a walking track, Maori carved house and children's playground. You'll positively love this amazing place!

Another recent addition to the magical city is the Southland Aquatic Centre - Splash Palace. If you are keen with water games, there is so much for you to do at Splash Palace, with facilities ranging from a 50 meter main pool, to waterslide and wave action leisure pool. Great for kids and adults alike!

Spend a moment for wilderness and create wonder in your trip. Some of the wildest and most dramatic scenery in New Zealand is found in Fiordland. Fiordland National Park is one of the largest in the world and is designated as a World Heritage area. Fiordland, a must see destination for visitors.

Scenic boat trips are also available on Doubtful Sound, which is the deepest of all the fiords. With its ancient rain forest and abundant wildlife, Doubtful Sound is unquestionably breathtaking. The physical grandeur of towering peaks with its outstanding waterfalls create an amazing sense of solitude and serenity.
