Southland

Southland

Southland is New Zealand's southernmost region and includes New Zealand's third island, Stewart Island.

The lush, green pastoral lands of Southland are a strong contrast to the dryness of Central Otago further north. Throughout the Southland region are a number of accessible, tranquil waterways that attract fly-fishing enthusiasts in search of brown trout.

Southland's largest urban centre is Invercargill, a city of 49,000 people. As in Dunedin to the north, Invercargill was originally settled by people from Scotland.
