Road tripping in New Zealand is a must. It is definitely the best way to discover this amazing country.
Today I’ll take you on journey between Queenstown and Dunedin. The road is called Southern Scenic Route and it is about 600km long ride you can’t miss.
We are driving around this route pretty often as the road goes through Invercargill and it always lead us to Queenstown or Dunedin for our weekend getaways.
The road is passing through Queenstown, Fiordland (Te Anau), Western Southland, Invercargill, beautiful Catlins, Clutha and Dunedin (Moeraki, Larnach Castle).
We are so lucky to live here as these wonderful places are within short drive from our home.
Let me take you on a ride around ‘one of the world’s great undiscovered drives’, how one magazine labeled it a few years ago.
Queens Park, Invercargill (my favourite place in town)
Purakaunui Falls, Catlins
Baldwin St, Dunedin, the world’s steepest residential street
There are so many great things to do along the way – short walks, boating, camping, tramping, fishing, mountain-biking – just pick your favourite activity and explore this beautiful part of the South Island.
