New Zealand’s southernmost region stretches along the Otago coast from Waitaki River to Stewart Island. Within the region lie the historic towns of Dunedin and Invercargill, both adorned with elegant Victorian and Edwardian buildings, museums, gardens and landscaped parks. Southern New Zealand is a place of lush pastoral lands, forests and geological wonders teeming with wildlife. Dolphins, penguins, sea lions and whales can be seen frolicking along its coastline and the skies are filled with birds.
