Opportunity to walk the boardwalk and see the estuary in all its glory and beauty. Just make sure you choose a good day, otherwise wrap up warm. Good track and view.

It was a sunny day so chose to head out on the bike. Not ventured out too far on the Estuary track before and don't know why to be honest. The track takes you through to the Bluff Highway ending up at the Woodchip Mill....More

This wasteland was once Invercargill's port and at the end of a long jetty before land reclaiming brought the shoreline up to the current wharf edge. There are still remains of the port but the main attraction is a replica of the first railway locomotive...More
