Gore struts to its own beat. The town declares itself New Zealand's 'home of country music', and when it isn't strumming its way through the Gold Guitar Awards it celebrates moonshine-distilling history, vintage aircraft and local art with a trio of distinctive museums. If small-town quirk plucks at your heart (or guitar) strings, Gore makes a crowd-pleasing stopover between Fiordland and the Catlins (66km northeast of Invercargill).
