At the Invercargill i-SITE you'll find local staff brimming with knowledge about the best things to see and do in Invercargill and throughout Southland. We have information on activities, accommodation and transport throughout New Zealand.

From major attractions to hidden gems off the beaten track, our friendly staff can help you plan an itinerary that works for you, whatever your interests, time and budget. We can take the hassle out of booking each service one-by-one. Let us recommend suitable services, then book and confirm on your behalf, with only one total payment rather than a myriad of individual payments.

We were looking for info and bookings for Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound plus accommodation in both Invercargill and Te Anau. The lass who served us was so helpful and competent and sorted us out no problems. Took the payment on the spit and that was us organised for the next three days

Must go and see Henry the 111year old Teutara and female ones. There is a great documentary to listen to. There was an Art exhibition and a 1st world war exhibition set up for the up and coming ANZAC day celebrations.

compact I-site. Seems to have everything one needs though. Just like other I-sites. Also has a cafe. I did not visit the cafe. And, of course, it has the free museum

The site is part of a museum, gallery and garden/ park. There is off road parking. Staff were very helpful and gave us a lot of information. The museum and gallery is well worth a look around. We visited the town on a Sunday and most of it was closed. There are a few interesting buildings but 2 hours was... More

Pretty standard service for an iSite. Neither great nor awful and I got what I wanted which was simply advice on travel to TeAnau and the Milford road for a visiting friend. I was disgusted to see the staff eating their lunches at their workstations. This is not a good look for visitors and neither was the smell of pizza.... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your experience at our i-SITE. I can assure you that the staff concerned have been reminded of the need for professionalism and that food is definitely not consumed in public view now. More

Picked up information at the I-site about a heritage trail in the city- easy walking and great way to visit many of the beautiful old buildings and churches in the city. Highlights St Mary's Basilica, Southland Masonic centre, Bank corner and boar war memorial, railway hotel, civic theatre and WEA building. We found Invercargill an interesting city and so pleased...
