INVERCARGILL POULTRY SHOW ON THIS WEEKEND AT KENNIGTON 9 -10TH MAY 2009 -

Invercargill (Waihopai in Māori) is the southern-most and western-most city in New Zealand, and one of the southern-most settlements in the world. It is the commercial centre of the Southland region. It lies in the heart of the wide expanse of the Southland Plains on the Oreti or New River some 18 km north of Bluff, which is the southernmost town in the South Island. It is bordered by large areas of conservation land and marine reserves, including Fiordland National Park covering the south-west corner of the South Island. There is much rich farmland to the north, as far as the beautiful lakes of neighbouring Otago. Description courtesy of Wikipedia. It is also commonly called Gumboot due to the high rainfall and the damp land used for agriculture. The city changed its image with the release of the motion picture : The World's Fastest Indian that documented the determination of the late Bert Munro of Invercargill. It used to Invercargill city of water and light. Now it is called Invercargill where dreams come true.The incumbent Mayor is bullshit and jellybeans Tim Shadbolt. It has an all weather international stadium. It also has a Poultry Show every May.
