"Riverton" Riverton by TomorrowsAngel

Riverton Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 20 photos

Riverton has many faces - it is a place of young geography and raw natural beauty....a fishing port....a seaside holiday resort....an artists' colony....the fishermen and hunters' last frontier....a farming centre.

Riverton, 38 km from Invercargill on the Southern Scenic Route is one of the oldest European settlements in the country. In the late 1700's it was a supply base for whalers and sealers from New South Wales (Australia).

Today Riverton retains many buildings in excess of 100 years old and is becoming increasingly popular as a holiday resort. Whether swimming, surfing, sailing or fishing; native bush walks, shopping or relaxing with a coffee, Riverton has a wide selection of attractions to choose from.
