Explore Invercargill and Southland in your hire car

Invercargill is not just a gateway to Southland, but also Stewart Island and Fiordland. Fiordland is one of the Southern Hemisphere's great remaining wilderness areas, with World Heritage Status, and access to some of New Zealand's most iconic walks, the Kepler, Milford and Routeburn tracks.


Visit the Southland Museum and Art Gallery

Address: 108 Gala St, Queens Park, Invercargill 9810, New Zealand

This unique cultural venue is located in the largest pyramid to be found in the Southern Hemisphere. The 27-metre high structure is set in the beautiful gardens of Queen's Park, right in the middle of Invercargill. Inside there are displays of tuataras, New Zealand's unique living dinosaur. The Roaring Forties Gallery is a permanent exhibition which transports visitors through multi-media exhibits, hundreds of kilometres past Stewart Island to the remote sub-Antarctic islands.

Doubtful Sound

Part of the world heritage site of Fiordland. While Milford Sound, further north, is considered number one of the must-dos in New Zealand, Doubtful Sound is equally charming, being further south, and more remote. Where Milford can be heavily touristed in the peak season, you may only see scarce local fishing boats on Doubtful Sound. Real Journeys runs memorable overnight cruises on their ship, the Fiordland Voyager. There are comfortable en-suite cabins and great value quad bunk rooms. The Voyager has a snug salon for dining. A tender or kayak excursion gets you off the boat and into the Sound for wildlife viewing.

The Catlins

Just over one hour's drive from Invercargill is the unique natural area of the Catlins. In this sparsely populated southern Eden, you can marvel at rugged coastlines, hidden lakes and podocarp forests. The far south latitude gives you long days in summer, perfect for exploring.
