During the winter Southland is the perfect place to catch a glimpse of the Aurora Australis. Also known as the Southern Lights, the Aurora Australis, lights up the sky with curtains and swirls of pink, red and green light. Dark areas away from the city lights, such as Stewart Island/Rakiura, The Catlins and Bluff are the best places to view this natural phenomenon.
