Friendly brand

101 fun, family things to do

The Council’s Friendly Brand Team is proud to introduce a list of 101 fun and family friendly things to do in and around Invercargill. The city is a great place to raise a family and the surrounding areas provide plenty of  opportunity to explore. The list highlights a variety of family friendly activities that are either free or at a low cost.

The Friendly brand staff hope the colourful list – which folds into a pocket or purse-size guide – will be welcomed by residents and visitors looking for ideas about what to see and do in and around the Invercargill area. The list is a living document and can be added to as other activities are suggested.

If you are interested in discussing the Friendly brand for your business or event, email or phone Community Development on (03) 211 1777. For updates on the Friendly brand, like our Facebook page.
