Southland is New Zealand’s southernmost region and includes New Zealand’s third island, Stewart Island.
Southland has the longest daylight hours in New Zealand, so you’ll have more time to enjoy yourself. Summer is the perfect time to discover Southland’s gardens. The clarity of light in the deep south makes the colours glow.
Winter often produces more sunny days than summer—wrap up warmly and visit the Cathedral Caves on the Catlins Coast. For all kinds of snow fun, visit the Waikaia Valley and catch a ride in a snow cat or try cross country skiing.
