    Pocket Guide: South Island

    New Zealand’s South Island is famous for its breathtaking beauty. You’ve probably heard that a million times before but from Nelson in the North to Invercargill in the South, there’s no denying the South Island offers some of the most stunning scenery in the world. And our range of South Island hotels makes exploring this remarkable place easy.

    The South Island is home to 10 national parks, and our range of Abel Tasman accommodation offers a great base to explore the smallest of them all. Here you’ll find secluded beaches and lush forests. Take some time to pinch yourself, it‘s beautiful isn’t it?

    At 3754 metres, Aoraki Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest mountain. Marvel at its size and beauty with our range of Aoraki/Mount Cook accommodation. If heights aren’t your thing, head to the Franz Josef Glacier or the Fox Glacier on the West Coast, to explore the world’s lowest-lying glaciers. For those after a slightly more laid-back experience, then check out Hanmer Springs; this alpine spa town is home to some of the country's most picturesque outdoor thermal springs. Or perhaps head east to Kaikoura hotels: once a sleepy fishing village, the area has now become a hotspot for whale watchers and dolphin lovers in New Zealand.

    Whether you want to hit the slopes or just grab a Fergburger and soak up the views, our great range Queenstown hotels are ideally situated all over New Zealand’s adventure capital so you can take full advantage of everything on offer. After all that adventuring, treat yourself and head to Marlborough where you can taste the region’s famous sauvignon blanc. Feeling creative? With over 300 artists calling Nelson home and workshops on offer including glassblowing, pottery, bone carving and sculpture, Nelson hotels is the town for you. Discover your artistic side with one of our Nelson hotels.

    New Zealand’s South Island isn’t all about the country side; there are also some great cities to discover. The Islands largest city is slowly rebuilding after the 2011 earthquakes, and while some of the major attractions are still closed, there’s still plenty to see and do. With one of our Christchurch hotels and accommodation you can explore this remarkable and resilient place. Meanwhile, Dunedin is home to New Zealand’s oldest university; so soak up the student culture at one of the city’s bars and cafes. Or just head straight to the source with a tour of Speights Brewery.

    Want to go skiing in New Zealand? The South Island is also home to some stellar ski spots including Mt Hutt, Coronet Peak and the Remarkables. With almost too much to do, New Zealand's South Island will have you never wanting to go home. Our great range of South Island accommodation is below.

    "Weekend stay at Base"
    Booked into a private twin share room. The room had good facilities. The heater was amazing. The room could have done with a vacuum. The showers could have been a bit cleaner. But overall it was a great hostel.

    "Friendly, professional, relaxing."
    Our family of 4 with 2 young kids loved staying at the Heritage as a base to explore Queenstown. Under ground parking was a bonus with the extreme cold conditions we had meaning no defrosting windscreens. The staff were all very friendly and helped with advice on road safety. Highly recommended.
