    This trip was about going places we hadn't been before, particularly for my partner and friend who was travelling with us. We managed a good chunk of the southern Scenic Route and it is such great travelling. Would love to do it again in the summer,

    We enjoyed walking with a friend and her dog through the well maintained park. It was out of season for flowers, but the trees were magnificent.

    well , I do not ride bikes but this place was amazing. I took 50 photos in 3 hours. I could not get enough of the place. but did get tired after 3 hours. What a huge piece of history and amazing displaces and write ups on the bikes history etc. I would go again just to take more of it in .

    This place is fun and quirky - and free! For those people complaining it’s not a museum quality experience - this is stuff that would have otherwise gone to tip. It’s great! If you love urbex this is awesome. Random stuff from times gone by that people have left behind - here in random glory to be enjoyed.

    just drive to the end of the road. easy - beautiful beach . you can drive on the beach but it is nicer to park and walk in and keep the beach free from traffic and noise. amazing area.

    It was our first horse ride and we were so thankful for Suzi and her horses. Suzi was very experienced and considerate. We got to ride her two horses - Blackjack and Rua and they were the most friendly, well-trained horses I have ever been around. Such a lovely experience and we highly recommend this if you visit Invercagil. It was the highlight of our trip!

    An on and off rainy day in Invercargill. Only there for 45 minutes, but we could have stayed longer. The building, which is not open reminds me of something out of the Sound of Music. A very good kids play area and a nice 15 minute walk around the gardens. There were quite a few Tui's.

    We were very lucky that the caretakers were there when we went, as it would of been a shame not to see inside, they told us a bit of the history its well worth a visit.

    We stayed for one night and it was really pleasant. Really friendly owner welcomed us and showed us where everything is. There’s even a coin operated washing machine which was very handy. The gardens are beautiful and the ducks/geese are very curious - maybe they were expecting some food?
