Southland, Fiordland and Stewart Island

Southland is the very southern most part of New Zealand. But actually not so far south. The south of England is around 300 km further from the equator than is the township of Oban, Stewart Island

The Southern Scenic Route takes you through rolling farmland hills and plains and then down to the Wild Catlins Coast, with deserted beaches, petrified forest, waterfalls and sea caves.

Coming from Central Otago and heading west to Te Anau and Manapouri you will see glimpses of the Fiordland Mountains, home to New Zealand’s largest National Park. Milford and Doubtful Sounds… more properly Fiords …. will beckon.

Then on south to Invercargill, gateway to Stewart Island, New Zealand’s southern-most inhabited Island, and home of Rakiura National Park. Stewart Island is all about beautiful beaches, forest, unspoiled Ulva Island and a small community living on the edge of the Southern Ocean
