Where you’ll be

Mataura, Southland, New Zealand

We love the friendliness of the locals and that the street is tucked away and quiet.

We are within walking distance to 2 dairies, fish & chips, doctor, butcher, cafes, library and RSA.

We have the Mataura River running through the town and the location is central to main centres.
