In the middle of the city, located next to the Queens Park, this I-site is also a Café, and Museum. A really good combination, a place where visitors can get any useful information they need while visiting Invercargill, a place for nice coffee and lunch break, but the most attractive is the Museum, Southland Museum and Art Gallery. A very... More

We had to spend about 3 hours in this place while we waited for a bus. It was raining so couldn't be bothered walking anywhere. The staff let us put our bags behind the counter, the museum side of it with live Tuatara is lovely. There is a great café and gift shopping all in one relaxing building

A little hard to find off a main road, but situated near the huge gardens in Invercargill. You can get all the info and advice you need here, including tours on Stewart Is etc. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Should be a focal point for any new visitor but they did nothing to help me explore the region. There must be more than what they were encouraging me to do.

We arrived only a few minutes before closing but the lady at the counter helped us to get a room for the night instead of shoving us out the door.

Plenty of relevant information about local and national tourist attractions and activities. The staff were very helpful when booking activities or cancelling them. They went out of their way when my shark dive was cancelled due to bad weather to contact the diving company although I had not booked through the visitor centre itself and ensured I got a full...

We stopped here to enquire about booking either ferry or flights to Steward Island. Staff were extremely helpful and did not rush you with decisions. They then made our bookings for us giving us vouchers to hand over at the airport and also for a cruise of Patersons Inlet on Stewart Island. You can book it all from this Centre.
