Gore, South Island, New Zealand.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel

Gore is at the heart of the Southland region in the South Island of New Zealand and is a service town to the surrounding farm communities. In New Zealand folklore, Gore is the home of Hokonui moonshine. During the days of prohibition, the Hokonui Hills to the west of the town gained a reputation for producing the best illicit alcohol. The Hokonui Moonshine Museum gives a fascinating insight into the moonshine era.

In Gore, gay and lesbian travelers will experience wide, open spaces and the tranquility of a rural setting while having access to a great range of attractions, as well as quality dining and visitor facilities. Gore also offers a great choice of gay-friendly accommodations ranging national hotels, guesthouses, self catering accommodation and back-packer parks. Prices and amenities range from budget to deluxe so there is plenty of choice for gay and lesbian travelers based on individual budgets and tastes.

It’s not surprising that a giant brown trout marks the gateway to Gore as it symbolizes Gore's reputation as the 'Brown Trout’ Fishing Capital of the World to the many world wide anglers who visit and fish.

Gore is also renowned amongst country and western music lovers and for hosting the annual New Zealand Country Music Awards. Gore has a sister city relationship with Tamworth, New South Wales, the "Country Music Capital of Australia". In June, Gore hosts the New Zealand Gold Guitar Awards, New Zealand's premier country music festival, and in February the Hokonui Outdoor Country Music Festival features local, national and international entertainers.

Gore is surrounded by native bush, farmland, rivers, mountains and lakes which gives gay and lesbian travelers every chance to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether you take a guided fishing expedition or simply enjoy a native bush walk, Gore and the Southland is an area to relax and unwind. For the more energetic, there is The Reservation Wildlife Park, and skiing, hunting and boating areas all within easy reach.

Gore is also a golfer's haven, with over a dozen full sized golf courses within minutes of town.

And while you are amidst the countryside Gore still offers gay and lesbian travelers an excellent range of shopping and dining.

So, if you’re looking for a truly Kiwi experience in the heart of the South Island, Gore has plenty to offer the gay and lesbian traveler.
