If you are after an authentic Southland experience you can’t go past a farmstay. There is nothing more kiwi than waking up to birdsong and watching sheep graze whilst sipping on a freshly brewed cuppa. Internationally New Zealand is famous for its agricultural production, so farmstays are an absolute bucket list item. Each farmstay experience is unique so why not visit a few? Look out for perks like wood fires, outdoor baths, sweeping scenic views, various farm animals, an unpolluted night sky and of course getting to know your authentic Southland hosts.
