Caring for Murihiku

Mindful Travel

The communities of Murihiku openly welcome visitors to experience our place and encourage responsible and sustainable travel practices. Mindful travel, which involves being aware of and respectful of the environment, local communities, and cultural heritage, has become increasingly important to travellers. In places like Murihiku Southland, we encourage visitors to follow the Southland Wildlife Care Code to help protect the region's unique wildlife and natural habitats. Similarly, the Tiaki Promise, a commitment to caring for New Zealand, encourages travellers to act as guardians of the environment and protect our country's natural and cultural resources.

But these are just a few examples! There are countless other ways you can reduce your ecological footprint while also finding inspiration in the beauty and diversity of the world. From eco-friendly accommodations to supporting local businesses and participating in conservation efforts, mindful travel can be both fulfilling and meaningful. 


Nau mai, tauti mai ki Murihiku - welcome to Southland. Let's take care of this place together!
