Our 8 week road trip around the South Island comes to its conclusion with our return to Christchurch this weekend. On the way from Invercargill (which does not make our list, you’ll note below) to Jack’s Bay, Catlins, our family talked about favorite moments and places along the journey.

Here, in no particular order, are our picks for South Island highlights. I have made some of them links to the longer entries we’ve posted, if you want to read more about any of the sights.




  • The view from Conical Hill on the Routeburn Track
  • Lakeviews in Te Anau and the great playground there
  • Fantail Waterfall, Mt. Aspiring National Park



  • Jack’s Bay Road house in the Catlins
  • Suprise swimming pool in the glaciers
  • Learning how to skip rocks
