The rugged South Island New Zealand is less populated than the North and the scenery is spectacular. From the fertile plains of the east to the glaciers and fiords of the west, this is an island waiting to be explored.
We have listed some great value accommodation in regional centres from where you can get out and discover the great New Zealand outdoors.
