Gore and/or Invercargill, unless I'm much mistaken. One of my earlier known ancestors set up a jeweler's shop there around the time of the gold rush.

Dunedin, where you have the House of Pleasure, aka Carisbrook Stadium.

Currently I'm living in Waitaha/Otautahi, where the current Super 12 champions are. Not that I'm a great Buggery Football Union fan, - I much prefer more open field codes like Aussie Rules - and I never grew up among the bum-sniffers (bad luck if your favourite gas is selfproduced methane!) - but it doesn't hurt to keep in touch with popular culture.
