    Gore is the brown trout fishing centre of Southland - the Mataura River has the highest population and catch rates of any river in New Zealand.
    Fish the best spots on the Mataura River, and get a guide to show you the other great trout pools in the area
    Visit the Hokonui Moonshine Museum
    Take an open cockpit air flight and see restored vintage aircraft at the Croydon Aircraft Company
    Drive further north to catch the Kingston Flyer, the vintage steam train that operates on a 14-kilometre stretch of scenic track between Kingston and Fairlight.
    Visit the seaside resort of Riverton, just to the west of Invercargill, one of the oldest permanently settled areas in New Zealand
    Tuatapere is the home of the Hump Ridge Track - a three-day walking experience through rugged coastline, podocarp and beech forest and spectacular sandstone outcrops
