Where you’ll be

Lumsden, Southland, New Zealand

Settled in 1862, Lumsden is a must for most trout fishing enthusiasts. The township is a major junction point in Northern Southland, offering tempting destinations in all four directions and therefore an ideally central location.
Trout fishing in well-known waters such as the Oreti, Aparima, Waikaia, Mataura and Brightwater are all within easy reach. Fishing guides are available locally for you to contact at your own cost. Pop on over to the east to Gore, another fly fishing mecca or slide an hour south to Invercargill to beautiful Stewart Island.
If action and adventure are your kind of thing, head north to Queenstown, a breathtaking one hour drive around the beautiful glacial waters of Lake Wakatipu.
The world-famous Fiordland National Park is a wonderful drive to the west where you can find rugged granite-topped mountains and the glacial-carved fiords of Doubtful and Milford sounds.
Locally in Lumsden, a must for visitors is the Bafe Bakery, world-famous for their wickedly delicious, American style donuts and scrumptious pies. You can also grab freshly made sandwiches from the supermarket for those who want to take a packed lunch. Alternatively, why not relax and drop into the local cafe, Route 6, which has taken its cue from the classic Route 66 American diners.
