South Island

South Island

Ahh, the South Island! I’m so glad you’re here and considering visiting my home and my favorite island in New Zealand (don’t tell the North Island!)

The South Island of New Zealand is home to the Southern Alps, Milford Sound, and, of course, Queenstown! Since deciding to call this region home in 2018, it’s safe to say I’ve done a ton of exploring! In fact, I’ve done laps around the island 10x over and continue to rack up those miles to this day.

Because of this, I have a ton of resources on the South Island, and below, you’ll find it all. I have links directly to blogs as well as other landing pages in major areas such as Queenstown, Milford Sound, and Wanaka, just to name a few.

From this page, you can explore all my South Island content, but I warn you, there is a lot of it!
