Renowned for its natural beauty, the South Island (151,000sq km) is blessed with tranquil lakes, rugged mountains, wild rivers and lush forest. A massive mountain chain - the Southern Alps - runs down its spine, taking in the country's highest peak, Aoraki/Mount Cook (3754 m). Fiordland is a key draw-card for visitors with its glacier-carved landscape of drowned river valleys and towering peaks.
The South Island is the larger of the two major islands of New Zealand, the other being the more populous North Island. The South Island is often called the Mainland (somewhat humorously) because it existed first according to Māori legend, and is larger than the North Island. About a quarter of New Zealand's four million inhabitants live in the South Island.
The South Island boasts ten national parks - Abel Tasman, Nelson Lakes, Kahurangi, Paparoa, Arthur's Pass, Westland, Mount Cook, Fiordland, Rakiura and Mount Aspiring. These majestic wilderness areas incorporate World Heritage Sites, fiords and glaciers, lakes, ski areas, rugged coastline, native forest, and world-class hiking tracks.
The South Island's largest city is Christchurch, known for its gracious parks and English character. Dunedin, with its Scottish heritage, is the second largest centre, and the country's best-preserved Victorian city. The student population of Otago University adds to the lively atmosphere of the city.
Taste the natural beauty and the historic cities of the South Island on your holiday or vacation in New Zealand.
