Fodor's Expert Review Water Tower

Invercargill Building/Architectural Site

An exceptional example of Victorian architecture can be seen peaking above the city's gentle landscape. Built in 1889 to pressurize the water supply, the structure was recognized by New Zealand's Historic Places Trust as one of the country's most outstanding industrial monuments. This ornate landmark is still completely functional. On Sunday afternoons you can sometimes scale the internal staircase of the 139-foot-tall structure.
