It sits amid rich farmland that is bordered by large areas of conservation land and marine reserves, including Fiordland National Park covering the south-west corner of the South Island and the Catlins coastal region.Many streets in the city, especially in the centre and main shopping district, are named after rivers in Great Britain, mainly Scotland. These include the main streets Dee and Tay, as well as those named after the Forth, Tyne, Esk, Don, Thames, Mersey, Ness, Yarrow, Spey and Eye rivers.

Where to stay in Invercargill

Look close to the train station for budget-friendly hostels and hotels, or head east on Woodlands-Invercargill Highway for some standard, mid-range hotels. Choosing the town center is a good idea for shorter stays, with most attractions nearby and easily accessible. If you're planning an extended stay, consider one of the ranches to the north or south of the city.
