Riverton has many good walks. One of the best starts at More's Reserve, at the top of Richard Street and offers spectacular views over Southland and Foveaux Strait. The Pourakino Walkway is also worth investigating.

Great fishing, including trout and salmon, is available all year round. Ask a local, visit a sports shop, or telephone the Southland Fish and Game Council in Invercargill for details.
