A camper route through Southland

Places to see in Southland, New Zealand

We inform you that this place is known as the deepest south of New Zealand. Certainly, the Southland route starts at Te Anau and ends at Dunedin. This area of the country is one of the least explored so we recommend you to make a camper route through Southland for 2 days.

Next, you can find some places to see during your trip.

Cathedral Caves

Cathedral Caves, one of the most tourist places of the area, are two caves that penetrate into the rock 200 meters. Note that these are only accessible for 2 hours before low tide and two hours later.

Also, remember that to get to the caves you must walk a path of about 20 minutes through a forest until you reach the beach. Finally, the price of the ticket is 5NZD per person and the tour will take you about 1 hour.
