Dig This Invercargill is New Zealand’s first heavy equipment playground. It is designed for anyone who has ever wanted to operate machinery, and there’s something for everyone from 4-100 years of age!
Visitors have the chance to take control of a bulldozer, digger or skid steer. An instructor will guide you through a series of activities and games within a controlled and safe environment. You don’t even need a drivers’ license, just wear closed toed shoes and come ready for some exciting action!
This attraction offers some serious fun. For those aged 14+, highlights include digger gymnastics, bucket basketball, tyre stacking challenges and teeter-tottering over a mega mound! You can even smash up a car to your hearts content with a massive excavator.
For the more conventional adults and all kids aged 4+, there’s also four fixed mini diggers – on these you can live out your digger driver dream by digging trenches and testing your control skills on a game of ‘catching ducks’.
Dig This Invercargill has a popular onsite coffee bar with light snacks available, and as with all Transport World attractions, be sure to check out the themed toilets!

Get ready to rip, push and pull your way to a whole new level of excitement.
