Tuatapere is a small town in Western Southland, with a population of approximately 650. The Waiau River runs through Tuatapere and the town lies just 8km from the South Coast, looking onto Stewart Island. Invercargill is an hour drive and is home to the regional hospital. There is much to do in the surrounding area, whether you take a ferry to the unspoilt Stewart Island with its clear waters, lush rainforest and sweeping sands, or you venture into the great Fiordland National Park. Not only does Fiordland National Park have many walks through breath-taking scenery, it is also home to spectacular ice-carved fiords, lakes, valleys and pristine mountain to sea landscapes. This location will ideally suit someone who likes the outdoors, tramping, camping, fishing, hunting and boating.
