South Island

South Island Landscape
Oamaru is just one of the many gems in the South Island of New Zealand.

If you’re planning a trip to the South Island of New Zealand, take your time and plan your route before you leave. The South Island’s largest cities are Christchurch and Dunedin, with many smaller towns such as Oamaru, creating a generally rural atmosphere. The South Island is home to around a quarter of the total New Zealand population.

The South Island’s landscape is dominated by the Southern Alps, a majestic mountain range which stretches from north to south.

The South Island’s landscape is famous due to its appearances throughout the Lord of the Ring Trilogy. Areas such as Queenstown and Arrowtown have benefited greatly through increased tourism, from overseas visitors wanting to see the many locations in which the films were shot.

The South Island is also well known for its many adventure and adrenalin activities. Queenstown is the hub for adventure, with Bungee Jumping, Sky Diving, Jet Boating up the river all available to test your boundaries. Skiing and snowboarding is also an extremely popular activity in the winter months, with the Queenstown Winter Festival kicking off the season every year.

Come and stay with us at Northstar Motel, during your trip around the South Island of New Zealand. We offer affordable, quality motel accommodation, close to all of Oamaru’s shops and activities.
