Top 10 things to do in Invercargill & Southland
Invercargill is Southland's principal centre. It's loved for its elegant old department stores, gracious historic buildings and wide, easy-to-navigate streets. It also has a whiff of petrol in its blood, because there are numerous transport-oriented attractions here.
Beyond the city, Southland welcomes you with big skies, awesome fiords, coastal drives and the remote perfection of Stewart Island. There are some fascinating stories down here too, from the lawless days of moonshine whisky and Burt Munro's quest to ride the World's Fastest Indian.
