The best of New Zealand: from the coastal scenery of the Catlins to Fiordland’s dramatic landscape

Southland/Murihiku is New Zealand's southernmost region. With a population of only 100,000 - positioned far away from the main centres of Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch - it encompasses several jewels of nature, and is a remarkably diverse landscape harbouring many gems.

This is a great country for nature lovers, landscape photographers, and dreamers, who will be mesmerised by its night sky and Southern Lights. You can test your fitness limits and endurance - at whatever level they exist - on never-ending trails over mountains, along paddocks, across rivers and through its temperate rainforests. You can marvel at the vintage collections of motorbikes, cars, airplanes, trucks or machinery that shaped this young country. Even those who previously considered themselves uninterested in machinery cannot help but be impressed and will come away having learnt something new.

The Catlins

is a charming coastal region with golden sand beaches, hilly farmland, and remnants of original native flora.

Stewart Island / Rakiura

A visit to Rakiura provides an insight into how New Zealand used to be before the arrival of Europeans. Here kiwi wander freely around houses, and kaka, the native parrot, are prolific.The Aurora Australis (alias Southern Lights) are often on display, especially during the winter months. Rakiura is truly the undiscovered taonga (treasure) in Aotearoa New Zealand.


houses two amazing classic automotive collections: Bill Richardson Transport World and Classic Motorcycle Mecca. Both are well worth a visit - even those who wouldn’t consider trucks and bikes to be their forte cannot help but be impressed.

Fiordland National Park lures visitors from all over the world, especially to Milford Sound. However, the majority of the park is inaccessible and challenging for outdoor enthusiasts. Opportunities exist to experience its splendour via helicopter, floatplane, vehicle, and boat.
