The Southland is New Zealand's southernmost region and is situated on the tip of the South Island. It is a premier destination for nature, wilderness and cultural heritage experiences. Major tourist destinations of the Southland area include Invercargill, Te Anau, the Fiordland National Park and Stewart Island. Being located on the southernmost tip means that weather conditions are far cooler and damper than other regions of New Zealand, attributing to some of the most unique flora and fauna found in the country. There are three distinct environments and associated climates in the region, these are; temperate coastal regions, continental climate of the interior and the wetter mountain climate of the Fiordland National Park.
The scenic diversity of the Southland is matched by many world class attractions and activities all operating in harmony with the region's unique environment. Two of the Southland's most prominent natural features are Rakiura National Park, covering most of Stewart Island, and the world heritage listed Fiordland National Park, which includes the magnificent Doubtful and Milford Sound. Activities to excite the senses include Scenic Flights, Helicopter Tours, Jet Boating, Boat Cruises, Kayaking, Coach Tours, Hiking & Trekking as well as Full Day and Half Day Tours.
As well as being a haven for countless species of native wildlife, Southland's architecture, museums and heritage trails are a must for visitors who want to immerse themselves in the history and culture of the region. The Southland is truly a wonderful place where visitors can become one with nature.
