We are moving 155km south from Te Anau to Invercargill. It's New Zealand's most southern city and is often overlooked by many which makes it an even better weekend destination.
As a matter of fact, never having visited Invercargill myself, thoroughly enjoyed researching the city as a destination and have now added the town to my travel list.
Enjoy the article and feel free to send me a note if you recently visited Invercargill or if you are a local and are happy to share a few secret spots.
It's easy to navigate around the wide streets of Invercargill. New Zealand's southernmost city has plenty of character and a warm, friendly heart."
Invercargill - Things to see and do - South Island | New Zealand (newzealand.com)
"New Zealand’s southernmost city was founded in the 1850’s and with a population in excess of approximately 60,000, Invercargill is the capital of Southland.
From a visitor’s point of view, Invercargill is well-equipped with an excellent range of shops and a selection of lively bars and restaurants. Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco heritage buildings give the city a charming old-world character.
And just minutes from the city centre there is a great array of coastal landscapes for visitors to explore from the long coastal highway of Oreti Beach, to the native wonders of Waituna Wetlands and Omaui, or the boardwalk on the estuary and heritage wharfs.
It may appear Invercargill is obsessed with anything that has wheels. You too can experience ‘wheel-mania’. Watch cyclists, or take a ride at the SIT Zero Fees Velodrome or discover the world class vintage truck collection at Bill Richardson Transport World (Bill Richardson Transport World - Create Memories » Bill Richardson Transport World). Alternatively, celebrate Invercargill’s motorcycle history at Classic Motorcycle Mecca and learn about the legend of speed - Burt Munro at E Hayes Motorworks (E Hayes Motorworks collection of classic and vintage motor vehicles. Burt Munro's Authentic, Original and Legendary 1920 Indian Scout. Motorcycles, cars, engines and memorabilia).
