Invercargill is situated at the far south of the South Island of New Zealand and located close to the southern tourist attractions of Queenstown, Fiordland, Stewart Island and the Catlins.

The airport is only 3 km from the centre of the bustling provincial city of Invercargill (population 50,000).
