Natural, original beauty! This is the South Island of New Zealand. The South Island is home to the Southern Alps, and there are many opportunities for skiing and snowboarding.
Christchurch is the busiest city on the South Island. It also offers international airports and direct flights to many overseas destinations. Sumner Beach, Gondola, Avon River and Cashmere Hills are the main attractions in Hillsted Church. The city centre is always busy with trams, which makes it a great place to hang out!
Dunedin, with its Cadbury factory, and Queenstown, with its adventure attractions, are two other cities not to be missed on the South Island. Queenstown also has bungee jumping, boat jumping and diving skiing opportunities. The Milford Sound Tour also departs from Queenstown and is therefore highly recommended. Ferries leaving Invercargill can also visit Stewart Island.
Most cities on the South Island are connected by Trans Rail, which is perhaps the most convenient way to travel. Alternatively, you can book a car rental and it is highly recommended to drive along the West Coast. You can take the Interislander ferry from Wellington or Sounds Air from Wellington Airport to the South Island from the North Island. Domestic flights operated by Air New Zealand and other airlines also connect most other cities in the South Island to Wellington.
