Contrasts and Catlins
[size=1em]The crisp winter mornings and hot, dry summer days makes the Deep South an environment of extremes. Lush, undulating green fields, coupled with rugged coastline and native bush, create a land of beautiful contrasts.
[size=1em]Most of you would have heard of Jurassic Park. Well, Southland serves up the Jurassic Forest. Over 180 million years old, the remains of this petrified forest can be seen in Curio Bay on the Catlins Coast. Gnarled tree stumps are accompanied by logs felled eons ago before man walked the Earth.

Moeraki Boulders
[size=1em]The naturally spherical boulders at Moeraki are 60 million years old. They have formed around a central core of lime crystals, which attracted and consolidated ingredients from the sea floor. The boulders were raised from the sea about 15 million years ago.

Bluff
[size=1em]Welcome to the end of the road. The southern leg of SH1 ends at Bluff, home of the famous Bluff oyster, which is regarded amongst the tastiest in the world. It is only a short ferry ride to the southernmost part of New Zealand, Stewart Island.

Stewart Island
[size=1em]New Zealand's southernmost inhabited island, Stewart Island, is a nature-lover's dream - not only because it is home to the country's latest national park, Rakiura, nor because it offers some of the best diving and tramping anywhere in New Zealand, but mainly because it is one of the most natural, untouched-by-man places in the country, if not the world.

Larnach Castle
[size=1em]Built in the late 19th century by controversial businessman/politician William Larnach, Dunedin's Larnach Castle is a beautifully restored building, with intricate interiors, surrounded by 35 acres of lavish gardens.
