Mark Twain described Milford Sound as the eighth wonder of the world and this incredible fiord is one of several stunning locations within the Southland district. The area's main city, Invercargill, has a multi-faceted, timeless character that lends itself to a wide variety of period looks including US townscapes from the ‘50s to present day.

Invercargill is the southern gateway to the unspoilt Southern Coast and Catlins region and also hosts a thriving tertiary institution (Southland Institute of Technology) offering various screen production courses, through the Sir Anthony Hopkins School of Dramatic Arts. Sir Anthony put Invercargill on the map while in the city to film The World's Fastest Indian.
