Invercargill - What to see and do
Half Day Activities:
About 20 kilometres south of Invercargill is the township of Bluff, famous for its oysters.
Riverton, the 'Riviera of the South'
Riverton, 38 km from Invercargill on the Southern Scenic Route is one of the oldest European
settlements in the country. Formerly used in the late 1700's as a supply base for whalers and
sealers from Australia.
Full Day Activities
Stewart Island is only a one-hour ferry sailing from Bluff or a 20-minute flight from Invercargill Airport.
Ferry sailings and flights to Stewart Island can be made from reception at no extra charge.
If you are planning a day trip to Te Anau, we would be happy to make any reservations for the Glow worm caves, Doubtful Sound or Milford cruises.
Located on the Southern Scenic route, the Catlins offers some unspoilt New Zealand coastline and wildlife. Our favourite spots are the Petrified Forest and Curio Bay and the lighthouse at Nugget Point.
