It Feels Like Home

A Boston girl goes Hollywood then chucks it away for a life in OZ… these are my adventures and general musings.

The Southern Scenic Route May 20, 2009

After Milford Sound, we decided to take some time and travel along the Southern Scenic Route. We didn’t do this on our last trip due to time constraints but, we heard many good things about it from people we met along our travels in New Zealand. The route is 440km and takes you through some of the most spectacular coastal scenery and country settings.

We started in Te Anau and headed south along the coast to Invercargill, continuing along the coast through the beautiful Catlins and finished up in New Zealand’s oldest city, Dunedin. We took many detours off the main road to do some bush walks, relax at the beach, find some waterfalls, ‘baaa’ at the grazing sheep, check out the petrified forests, take some pictures of wild seals and yellow-eyed penguins and most of all, simply enjoy some of the best natural scenery in the world. We encountered nothing but the nicest people, beautiful landscapes and delicious local Kiwi cooking.
