Parks & Outdoor Playgrounds

Invercargill is a beautiful coastal city that offers visitors a range of activities and attractions to enjoy. If you're looking for some fun in the sun, head to Oreti Beach - one of the few beaches in New Zealand where you can drive your vehicle right onto the sand. This beach is perfect for families, surfers, and anyone who loves spending time by the sea.

For those who prefer to stay active on land, the Sandy Point Domain is a great place to explore. This recreational area features walking and running trails, mountain biking tracks, horse riding paths, motocross tracks, and even dog sledging opportunities. The trails wind through the local bush and along the beaches, providing breathtaking views of the coastline.

Invercargill also has a variety of parks, gardens, and reserves both within the city and just a short drive away. If you're interested in learning about the city's history and ecology, take a stroll along the boardwalk around the estuary. This area is rich in local history and offers a glimpse into the city's past.
