Spring Events Guide

Blossoms in Spring - Southland
Great South

Emerge and embrace that sense of new life, as Spring blooms - it’s time to catch up with friends and enjoy Southland’s natural wonders. Let the mountains wrap their arms around you as you explore tussock-spanned hilltops - then sit back and enjoy lingering evenings as daylight savings kicks in.

Weekends come alive with things to do at the places you want to be - cast a line from shore as the tide rolls in, on the lake, or as the river runs. It’s freedom, solitude, and camaraderie, all wrapped into one. We are the home of the ultimate weekend getaway.
