Western Southland has loads to offer, if you're looking for something more exhilarating like a jet boat ride down the Wairaurahiri South coast through 27km of grade 3 rapids or chill out and try your hand at catching a southern brown trout. If you want to try a spot of hunting stay the night at the southernmost Waitutu Lodge.

If you like mountain biking, walking or 4wd try Bald Hill, 47 kilometres return climbs through Longwood Forest to the very top of Bald Hill one of the best lookout points in Southland with views of Fiordland and Stewart Island also we have the Mount Linton Muster this annual one day event is a chance to see the station either walking, running or by mountain bike.

Golf, Otautau has an undulating 9 hole course which takes a little more energy than some flat courses, well worth a look. For a more flatter terrain Drummond Golf Course is less than 10mins drive.

Templeton Flax Mill Heritage Museum is New Zealand's only authentic flax mill plant operating on it's original site since the 1940s.

Te Hikoi Museum is South's ultimate heritage attraction. Relive the historic events aboard the sailing ship theatre.

Clifden caves and bridge are a must do. These limestone caves are an awesome underground adventure and just around the corner is the suspension bridge which was built in 1899, this iron bridge was used to cross the Waiau river. The bridge has been accessible to pedestrians only since 1978.

  • A very large place, well stocked, quiet

    A very large place, well stocked, quiet. Possibly could do with wifi, but Spark and Vodafone 3G working.

    Lovely quiet location. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, full of character and charm. Feels so homely that you don't want to leave. Has everything you need for a family.

  • Very close to rvierton and Invercargil

    Very close to rvierton and Invercargil. Short drive to amenities. But still very much away from it all. No hustle and bustle or traffic passing by. Superb place to stay
