Top Experiences for Visitors

See Waipapa Point Lighthouse

Waipapa Point Lighthouse sits to the southeast of Invercargill in the scenic Catlins forest park. The lighthouse was built in the 1880s as a response to one of New Zealand’s worst maritime disasters. Today, Waipapa Point Lighthouse is one of the most famous landmarks for visitors to Invercargill. In addition to visiting the lighthouse, you can take a walk along the beautiful stretch of beach nearby and see a series of unique native trees. Waipapa Point is also a great spot for wildlife viewing – you may spot some seals or a walrus.


Have fun at Demolition World
