We need your help for a series we'll be publishing this summer. Tell us about the best things you can find in the South Island - ie the best place to walk your dog, best playground for kids, best place to stop for a swim, best toilets, best icecream/milkshake, or the best place to stop for lunch.
Share your favourite South Island spots and activities by commenting below (and tell us why you love them), or you can send us a PM or email email@example.com

Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.
May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”
Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.
