Southland Region

4.5
Bodies of Water · Caves · Hiking Trails
A land of fjords, rocky coastline, and expansive plains, Southland Region remains known for its impressive scenery and abundant native wildlife. Relatively untouched and uninhabited swathes of land and sea, much of it protected, support rare bird species and an abundance of marine life, such as seals, whales, and dolphins. Don't expect too many urban centers on your tour of Southland Region, but when you do happen across one that's sprung up from the wilderness, be sure to try the famed local cuisine, such as the bluff oyster and other seafood. To plan New Zealand vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
