    Car Rental Invercargill

    Invercargill Car HireOn 2800 kilometres from Antarctica, Invercargill is one of the southernmost cities in the world. It's the perfect place to end your New Zealand car hire tour. It's one of the first places in the country where missionaries had extended contact with the local Maori whalers and sealers. This has helped to keep the town rich in culture and create a unique feel that is hard to find anywhere else on the globe.

    Grab your car hire and go on an adventure through Invercargill and the amazing New Zealand nature that is surrounding the area. Drive your car hire west to visit Fiordland National Park, the largest national park in New Zealand. This park is where the Southern Alps meet the sea and you can find clear lakes, beautiful valleys and fiords. Get your fishing gear out or go for a walk. There's enough to do in this area.

    Drive your car hire east to visit the Catlins. Find landscapes that have never been touched and are just as wild as they were centuries ago. Drive your car hire through the rainforest and look out for the unique wildlife. The locals are great tour guides and because many of them are descendants of local Maori or European whalers, they can tell you things about the area like no one else. Most visitors end up staying longer in Invercargill than planned. The many museums, art galleries and historical sites offer days of entertainment. If you're in the city at the right time, you might be lucky enough to see the Aurora Australis. Drive your car hire down to the beach and enjoy this extraordinary phenomenon.
