Arts, Culture & Heritage

Southland and its capital city, Invercargill, hold strong ties to a bygone area which is easily witnessed in the stunning Victorian and Edwardian architecture across the city centre, notably the Civic Theatre & Anderson House. There is a mass of heritage stories woven through the small towns that used to be home to bustling industries and significant settling spots. There are 8 Heritage Trails in Southland that showcase these landmarks.
