THE SOUTHERN SCENIC ROUTE

This journey between

Queenstown and Dunedin

is approximately 610

kilometres(km) of natural and

cultural attractions laid out

one after the other - wildlife

viewing, short walks, mountain-

biking, fishing, hunting, boating,

camping, tramping and caving–

making it an ideal drive for those

with time to explore. The route is

well signposted, guiding visitors

from Queenstown to Dunedin

(or vice versa), via sealed country

roads and highways.

Alternative inland roads provide

a more direct path between

the main centres. However, the

Southern Scenic Route (SSR) is

a journey that allows access to

deserted beaches, lush rainforest,

pristine lakes and stunning

mountain vistas.

ORIGIN OF THE ROUTE

The Southern Scenic Route was

originally conceived by the

people of Tuatapere, Western

Southland, who, in1985, decided

to share the delights of southern

New Zealand with all those who

took the time to venture down

their way. Their determination

and perseverance in the face

of initial official reluctance, has

created a wonderful holiday

experience and entertained

admiring visitors from all over

the world. This publication is

the official guide to the route -

we hope you find it useful.
