Scenic Deep South

Scenic Deep South

Discover the full flavour of the deep south with this short, but scenic self drive route.

Leave the action-packed world of Queenstown and enjoy a peaceful drive to Te Anau.

Rivers and mountains provide endless photo opportunities.

Caves, lake trips and walking tracks will occupy your time in Te Anau, then you'll drive east to the city of Dunedin for a dose of heritage architecture and wildlife.

The trip back to Queenstown takes you across Central Otago to Alexandra, hub of the region's fruit growing industry.

Historic gold towns, a spectacular gorge and vineyards are other things to see.
