Lucked out at this hostel as there was only me and one other lady in our 4 share. It was great for 2 but might have been small with more. Slept great. Kitchen small too but had some nice picnic tables outside to eat. Very convenient to Botannical Gradens behind...which were VERY nice and short walk to bus station...maybe 10 minutes.

... look around it was straight into the small town for dinner!! We were starving! After rather enjoying the lamb burger I had on site in Hobbiton (Matamata) I decided to eat one of those again and it was faaab. We ate at a place called 'Trout'. However we decided after eating it was quite expensive for what we got.. as in the taste not the size of the portions.

Then it was back to the house for a good nights sleep before the drive to QUEENSTOWN in the morning!!!

... Dunedin and dropped some little boys off on the side of the road with their mom. Then we finally got to Invercargill and i walked to my hostel. It was a cute little house called southern comfort. I had the 5 bed ensuite room all to myself, which is usually good unless its fricking freezing. I chatted with the other guest that were staying there and went to bed ...

Proved to be the one town we have spent most time in so far. Once a thriving Victorian/Edwardian port with grand sandstone buildings it fell on hard times and was left as it was for a few decades. In recent years it's been restored and is now a quirky, colourful, ...
