Our People, Our Places – My Southland Story

Southland District Council, in conjunction with James Jubb of Jubb Studios, is proud to bring you Our People, Our Places – My Southland Story – a celebration of Southlanders. Each week on a Sunday night we will have a new video about a Southlander who is doing something innovative or is the heart and soul of their community so watch this space. We are thrilled to bring this to you as an acknowledgement of the great things happening in our communities.

The first video follows Tom O'Brien as he shows us around Welcome Rock Trails' epic 27km of hand built mountain bike and walking trails near Garston New Zealand. Discover why Tom O'Brien loves living in this amazing playground and how the trail evolved to encapsulate the local history and stunning views.


This week's story takes us to Riverton where we talk to Jess Terril who is living the dream in Southland.
