It’s a gorgeous little town, at the edge of South Island. If u r coming from north island in a ferry, Picton seems like the Monaco of New Zealand. With yatchs parked as far as you can see. For dinner, go to Cafe Cortado and try the Lamb shank, with some local brews.

Queenstown is a tourist dependent town. It pays to shop around a bit for places to eat.

With all tourist type towns anywhere in the world, they dependent upon getting their hands in your wallet.

The cheese and wine places on the edge of town deal in silly money and depend upon the mug of the month dropping $70 for some cheese and wine that a similar product in the supermarket is $15.

The views are magnificent.

Roads on the South Island make getting here difficult .

+ It seems that people in Invercargill are much friendlier than the rest from South Island.

– Parking for free in the city is impossible, but it’s quite common in bigger cities.

Queenstown may be the most scenic spot in New Zealand. It is the adventure centre in the South Island, any single adventure sport you can imagine can be done there, it depends only on your will andyour physical abilities.

Christchurch was our entry point to a 2 week tour of the South Island. We were only there 2 nights and New Zealand should have taken another day to explore more. We loved The Sunday Market…a nice mix of food carts, crafts and “stuff” Victoria Street was a nice place for upscale shopping and lunch with a nice band playing. We also drove through the tunnel and saw some spectacular views! Would have liked to have spent more time exploring that area.

Bear in mind we had miserable weather as a cyclone bore down on the South Island, but Methven didn’t shine as a destination for us. We did have a nice lunch at a little cafe across from a grocery store—I think it was called Primo Cafe.

The iSite staff was approachable, but not as welcoming as we encountered elsewhere. We were misinformed as to which restaurants were serving lunch, and her New Zealand directions to a post box led me to nothing I could identify as a place to mail my letters.

I gather it is a ski destination, or very scenic in the fall. I would visit our B&B again as a lovely place to stay, but would have to find local activities before arriving if I came again. Our plans had been to spend time outdoors, and the weather spoiled that.

The town was quiet. Parking was very easy.

Picton is a great little town situated in the heart of some of the most spectacular scenery on the South Island with heaps of outdoor adventures right there too. We love Picton.

Owaka is truly a small town. However, it’d make a great base to explore the areas around Dunedin and southern locations for nature,such as, waterfalls, hiking, Caves, Sea lions, penguins, etc. It is along the Southern Scenic Route that you truly should not miss.

Also, It has a wonderful restaurant called the Lumber Jack. The outside does not do it justice. Just the woodwork alone is worth a trip inside. Although the dinner is a little pricey, the food was some of the best we had in all New Zealand, both North and South Islands. I had the Lamb roast and I never had better. My husband loved the Battered Blue Cod and my daughter loved the pan fried blue cod. Memorable!

The South Island of New Zealand is a truly a magical destination for an amazing adventure!

Christchurch City is small and quaint with nice shopping areas. Remember it is in a major rebuilding phase from the big earthquake 7-8 years ago.The parks and museums are very nice. But the best part of New Zealand is to get out and drive. The scenery is awesome!

The hotel was in a really convenient location in Picton…..you could walk to anything in less than 10 minutes.The owners are new and are trying their best to New Zealand spruce up the hotel which is taking a good deal of their time.They are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you feel right at home.Everything in the hotel is spotless and squeaky clean.They also had a nice choice of breakfast items for you to start your day,We stayed here twice, once as we came on to the South Island and once as we were to leave it.

This is probably the nicest accommodation in Hokitika.It is a very modern renovation of the old fire station.There are units on two levels.The unit was nicely furnished and reasonably well equipped.As we are finding on this South Island tour there is a very loose and broad definition of kitchenette.This unit had a small fridge, sink, microwave (with various cooking vessels to be used), a kettle and a toaster.There is no hob or electric fry pan.We had to get a bit creative the night we cooked in.

First Light Kaikoura is a self contained apartment with its own entrance on a bluff above Kaikoura. It is very clean and comfortable, we loved the views from the balcony. Tracy, Murray and their daughter are excellent hosts and really nice people. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at First Light Kaikoura and New Zealand highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kaikoura, which should be on everybody’s South Island Itinerary.

Our flight arrived in the late afternoon and this property was so conveniently located next door to Christchurch Int’l Airport and the Countdown supermarket was within a few minutes walk from the hotel, so we picked up fruits, water right there before starting our South Island road trip the following morning. Room was clean and comfortable. Recommended!

This hotel was a standout in our 11 day South Island road trip. It was exceptionally clean and the beds and lines were top notch. The owners of the hotel were so kind and welcoming. And having two bedrooms and a living room were perfect for our family of four. It was a great stop between Kaikoura and Mount Cook. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Mauria Springs is an exceptional place. The natural beauty, magic and healing powers of the mountains and hot springs are only enhanced by the new owner’s care, thoughtfulness and understanding of nature, quality and life.

The cabin (glamping) we stayed in was warm, cozy, comfortable, clean and minimalistic – very zen!

The bathrobes provided are comfortable and give a very luxurious effect.

Exploring the beautiful grounds is a magical experience. From mountains to native forest, home made treats to various Japanese treasures to be discovered..

The dining and lounging areas are very nice. There are a selection of games including chess which are delightful to play by the roaring fire. The food is delicious and of very high quality, both ingredients and taste.

The staff are all very friendly, approachable, knowledgable and helpful.

The hot springs are the best we have ever been to. Very natural/healing/therapeutic/soothing/luxurious/delightful/beautiful/peaceful.

The experience of the hot springs is enhanced by the sauna and cold plunge pool (which you should definitely make the most of – there are numerous beneficial mental/physical/emotional/spiritua healingl properties)

We really appreciate all the effort that has gone into making such a wonderful place. A lot of thought and care has been put in. There is no guilt with over-indulging as everything is so sustainable.. power and heating is all hyrdo-powered! The food is ethically sourced, mostly local and seasonal.

There are many fun, inspirational and vitality-increasing activities including Yoga, Sauna infusion and Nature Walks.

I would recommend staying two nights to get the full benefits of this natural paradise.

I hope Mauria Springs encourages others to create such places that one leaves feeling inspired and full of life and vitality.. and demonstrates this can be done without exploiting the Earth or each other.

Thank you Kim & Co.

Kate & Henri.
