Plans are afoot to reinstate one of Invercargill’s lost tourist experiences, with a report coming before the Invercargill City Council next week ( Monday April 8) looking at options to carry out the earthquake strengthening work on the city’s landmark Water Tower.

This work is needed to bring the building up to 67% of the National Building Standards. Council has set aside funds for the project in the Council budget for the strengthening work.

Just what sort of tourist experience will be available at the Water Tower remains to be seen.

Previously the Tower had been open to the public on Sunday’s and Venture Southland has been enlisted to look at options. Venture’s advice to Council lists two possible approaches – a basic one in line with the previous experience or an enhanced tourism operation.
While quality tourist opportunities would be best to the city, these can come with financial and operational risks and Council will have to evaluate these before deciding how to proceed.
