“THE GATEWAY TO FIORDLAND”

Lots of wide open spaces and great target practise...

Can get quite cold so remember to take a woolly ju...

Well, having been born and ‘raised’ in Southland, (and also being in the Southland Hockey Team), I have to say – it’s got every persons dream of wide-open spaces and not a great deal to do. Then again – I used to live there, so I would expect it to be boring! Having...

If you get a chance to go to Milford Sound, try to stay one night on the cruise "Milford Wanderer". You'd never regret for that. Most of the people have a day trip to Milford Sound from Queenstown or Te Anau. It's a very long journey and you'll find yourself most of the time on bus. We set off...

“Going South...”

Hard to think of, trickier to get to than Auckland...

“Student City, full of life”

published 21/06/2000

Awesome atmosphere, great location

“Dunedin”

published 30/07/2000

Although Dunedin has a bit of a reputation as being a bit boring compared to New Zealand's many other beautiful, interesting and wonderful places, there are actually loads of things to do and in my opinion it's well worth a visit. The nature and wildlife are abolutely amazing and the Otago...
