The major factor in Invercargill’s regrowth is the dairy industrial boom of the 2000s (decade) due to an increased demand for New Zealand milk, cheese, and butter.
New dairy factories have opened around the Southland Region, as well as more efficient meat processing works.
Invercargill is home to the only indoor cycling velodrome in the South Island.
It is located at Surrey Park. The stadium itself was badly damaged after its roof collapsed in 2010 following a heavy snowfall.
