Father’s day fun for the whole family at Dig This Invercargill

26th August 2019

Dig This Invercargill is New Zealand’s only heavy machinery playground – which makes it an obvious choice when it comes to giving Dad an experience he will never forget this Father’s Day.

What father wouldn’t love to have a crack behind the wheels of our bulldozers, skid steers and diggers? It’s an epic experience and any Dad would count himself lucky to be treated to a chance to play in our giant gravel pit. And let’s face it – ticking it off his bucket list is bound to score you plenty of brownie points!

But if you think Dig This Invercargill is all about the guys, think again – here you’ll find fun for the whole family, making it the perfect place to spend September 1 and celebrate the main man in your life.

While Dad has a go at a range of thrilling experiences (does he seem the type to enjoy our ‘duck pond’ challenge? What about dozing through a giant mound of dirt? How do you think he’d feel about crushing a car?) the rest of the family can have some fun too.

Mum or the kids can get in on the action – while our ‘big dig’ experiences have age limits of either 12 or 14 years, our Mini Digs are fun whether you’re 5 or 105.

If you’re after a more subdued activity, our on-site coffee bar boasts freshly-brewed coffee and delicious treats including the world-famous-in-Southland delicacies including pies, scones, or hot cheese rolls.

Indoor or outdoor seating provides the ideal perch to keep an eye on the littlest members of your family: while the machines roar around our giant gravel pit, the kids can play to their heart’s content in the sandpit, complete with ride-on miniature versions of the equipment that call Dig This home.

Bookings are recommended – get in touch with the friendly Dig This team to lock Dad’s day in.
