    Southland Museum and Art Gallery

    Nice little museum with a live reptile section and a wee coffee shop with good cakes attached. A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours in Invercargill.

    A great way to see or get to Stewart Island. Very small planes which add to the adventure and they provide a shuttle service from wherever you are staying. Very professional and friendly staff.

    A three day walk through some of the best scenery in the world. There is wildlife such as penguins and seals and good accommodation for each night. There are guides available, ask at the DOC office.

    This overnight boat ride through Real Journeys is absolutely wonderful. Great crew, delicious 5 star buffet dinner & breakfast bar on board. Nice ship, very clean & well maintained. Included in the price is kayaking with a guide in the sound.

    Emberz Restaurant

    This is one of three dining options in the Ascot Park Hotel. I was impressed by the service and quality of food and wine. It is not cheap but a little luxury from time to time is nice.

    Considering Bombay Palace is on a back street it does an amazing job with a pleasant setting. On approach you think that it is a house but once inside, it is quite large. Very good wait staff and service. The main restaurant has two big TV's playing Indian music videos which is a nice touch.

    Hands down best restaurant in town. Excellent staff, helpful and friendly. The restaurant has a great feel, unique and lively decor. Great to see a superb Wine/Beverage list, even embracing a selection of local craft beers.

    This cafe is down a side street and well worth hunting out. Good food and coffee and a great view of the mountains. The staff were very friendly and awesome smoothies.

    A well known local style restaurant which specialises in sophisticated wild game dishes. The food is to die for and the service stunning. A must when you're in Te Anau.

    Seafood heaven

    It's only a hop skip n jump down to Bluff on the south coast. This is the home of New Zealand's best oysters and other seafood. If you love seafood this is heaven on earth.

    Milford Sounds

    From Te Anau you can drive over the hill to Milford Sounds. It's once in a lifetime journey. Through a rocky tunnel, past hundreds of waterfalls and then arriving at the sounds. It's a crime to visit this area and not do this drive.
