Local Area and Activities in Invercargill

Highly rated "must do's" the Southland Museum and Art Gallery at Queen's Park, Burt Munro and vintage motorbike displays at E Hayes and Sons ('World's Fastest Indian' movie), Oreti Beach where part of the movie was shot, Bill Richardson Transport World and Motorcycle Mecca, Stirling Point Signpost (the South Island's most recognised southern point), Bluff Hill Lookout, Stewart Island (including Ulva Island, famous for its native birds and flora).

On your visit to the Southland Museum, be sure to allow enough time to admire the Tuatara display, the world's only living relative of the dinosaurs. If you are lucky, Henry will be receiving visitors.

The two Transport World facilities are both world class. Every detail has been planned and themed, including the cafes, display rooms and the rest rooms (each one is different so make time to visit all of them!) There is plenty to interest everyone and men, women and children have all been catered for in the displays.

A number of outdoor recreation areas like the Queen's Park and Golf Course can be found in the middle of the city, walking distance from your motel. The city is blessed with many scenic walking and cycling tracks. Splash Palace Swimming Pool is great for young and old or if speed is your thing, Kart City Go-Karts. Ten pin bowlers are catered for at Superbowl and the list just goes on. And there there is great shopping in the CBD!


Invercargill has many wonderful restaurants, most within 2km of Comfort Inn Tayesta.

Menus have a wide range which include Blue Cod, Oysters, Mussels and Crayfish, freshly caught from the Southland coast. Feast on Southland lamb, venison and beef steaks.

Just ask us on check-in and we will give personal recommendations.
