Where are our clinics?
Our five clinics are in Dunedin, Invercargill, Winton, Queenstown and Mosgiel. We have visiting clinics at Te Anau and Gore.
See what our staff think of their locations:
‘Dunedin is a great place to raise a family. It has excellent schooling options and access to many outdoor pursuits including fantastic beaches, walking and cycling tracks, parks and recreational areas.’ ~ Anthony Rowcroft
‘Invercargill is a friendly, pretty city. The weather is predictably seasonal without the extremes of cyclones and flooding. Living is affordable with rents and median house prices lower than other regions. We have superb facilities; cultural and sporting clubs, and excellent education options. Invercargill is a great base for outdoor activity; everything from skiing to hunting is on your doorstep. The ILT Stadium & Velodrome is home to numerous medal-winning cyclists.’ ~ Kate Cunninghame
'Winton is a vibrant rural town with everything that you could want but no crowds or traffic; no traffic lights. It is only 20 minutes from Invercargill. No matter what your interests, there are activities for everyone and walking around town everyone says hello. We have good services here, and good schools. It rains and get cold in winter, but Queenstown and Te Anau are only 2 hours away so you can enjoy the mountains, and oh boy the scenery just takes your breath away. If you need a day shopping, Dunedin is 2 hours away.’ ~ Kirsty
‘Queenstown; where else in New Zealand can you wake up to unique views of the lakes and mountains? Everything is on your doorstep —swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, vineyards and easy access to great walks, like the Milford Track. People have a relaxed attitude and slower pace of life compared to the bigger cities. Unlike the grey and rainy UK where I grew up, the weather has beautifully defined seasons! ~ Alison Hanrahan
‘Mosgiel is an outer suburb of Dunedin but operates like a small town. We have a real sense of community, and people make an effort to support local businesses. New shops are popping up and lots of new homes are being built. The summer climate is warmer than Dunedin, but colder in winter — we get snow! Rush hour is the school drop-off and pick-up; otherwise there is little traffic. Lots of flat land makes it great for walking and biking, especially for the kids. Everything you need is here; schools, supermarkets, shops, a library, cafes, a great park. And we are fundraising to build a new pool.’ ~ Hannah Teviotdale
Five reasons to live in the south of New Zealand
We are a vibrant, family-friendly community, with traditional values and a relaxed lifestyle. Our cities and towns are easy to get around and you won’t be sitting in traffic jams for hours.
We live close to nature; mountains, forests, lakes, rivers and oceans. The region is renowned for outdoor pursuits: boating, diving, walking, fishing, golf, mountain biking, or the less strenuous arts and heritage trails.
Although an island, we have a ‘continental’ climate; our seasons are sharply defined with long summer days, colourful autumns, freezing winter nights, and vivid spring growth.
Housing is a mixture of new and character homes, and popular lifestyle blocks. A strong building industry serves the demand for new housing. There are many cultural and sports activities to be involved in.
We have excellent educational facilities; preschools, kindergartens, primary schools, and secondary schools. The fee-free Southland Polytechnic in Invercargill and Dunedin’s University of Otago offer tertiary education.
