Start your journey at the famous Mataura River well known for its ‘rising fish’ and ‘may-fly’ hatch. Go fishing in lush rural areas and then move across to the majestic Fiordland. Here you will experience towering waterfalls and stunning mountain landscapes. Take time to visit Milford Sound, once described by the writer Rudyard Kipling as the eigth wonder of the world. Some roads in this region can be narrow and windy. Drive with caution and familiarise yourself with driving in New Zealand before getting behind the wheels.
Spend the first day of this itinerary in Invercargill. Pick up a rental car and if you'd like to fish with a guide over the days ahead, get in touch with Fly Fish Mataura.
Get in some relaxation before the action begins.
It’s easy to navigate around the wide streets of Invercargill. New Zealand’s southernmost city has plenty of character and a warm, friendly heart.
