Invercargill is the gateway to the “Southern Scenic Route” which follows the southern coast of the South Island. With its combination of cultural attractions, parks and nature reserves, this most southern city is pleasantly slower paced than many of its northern counterparts. Over recent years an inner city upgrade has seen many old heritage buildings renovated, breathing new life into the rejuvenated the city centre. One of the most popular city attractions is the Southland Museum and Art Gallery which exhibits live Tuatara in the centre of the city.
History and Culture
The first Europeans to set foot on the southern coast of the South Island were sealers in the late 1700’s. Flax harvesters arrived in the early 1800’s followed by whalers after 1829. Sailors, traders and entrepreneurs soon followed. Maori had settled the region some 600 years before where bountiful fish and birds were an easy food source. Upon the arrival of the Europeans, the Maori people quickly saw the opportunity to trade and welcomed the new arrivals. The city of Invercargill began to take shape when settlers from Dunedin began buying land in the area. The port of Bluff was soon established to import live sheep from Australia to stock the farms and the service town of Invercargill surveyed. Many of the streets were named after rivers in Scotland and northern England. Buildings following the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco style were built and remain today. Invercargill enjoys long daylight hours from 5am til 10pm in summer providing ample time to enjoy the many gardens and parks in the city. The Southern Institute of Technology, which offers a wide range of courses on a free of fees basis, has attracted many new students to the city.
