Further details about Southland Anniversary Weekend
As its name suggests, Southland is the most southerly region of NZ and its statutory holiday falls at the end of March. This is one of the largest NZ regions and it has one of the most unique landscapes in the whole of the country.
Most people will visit Southland during the public holidays to enjoy its landscape. It boasts numerous mountains, lakes, rivers and open plains. There are also over 3,400 kilometres of coastline to enjoy.
Here you can get up close to the wildlife and observe such diverse animals and birds as penguins, dolphins, sea lions, Takahe, and of course, the famous Kiwi.
