When visitors stay in Gore's hotels, they have often been drawn there by the excellent trout fishing opportunities and the wide, open wilderness of the Southland region. This small country town kicks up its heels when it hosts the New Zealand Gold Guitar Awards every year. This country music festival features the best of New Zealand's and international country music singers and artists.
You'll find one of Scenic's hotels in Gore, the welcoming Heartland Hotel Croydon. Set in 13 acres of park-like grounds on the edge of town, this Gore accommodation offers a warm welcome and true southern hospitality.
