Did I mention I’ve been to New Zealand’s South Island? Well, I did, and it was amazing (here are five reasons why it was so awesome). I wasted no time in telling people I was going, and asked those who’d already been for some tips. Normal questions, you know – where was your favourite place? What do I have to do? What’s the one thing I can’t miss?

But the one thing everyone seemed to agree on was that when I was in Queenstown, I had to go to Fergburger. “Where?” was my naïve response. Cue gasps of indignation, cries of “You’ve never heard of Fergburger?” and similar responses to make me feel the same way I felt when I was at university and revealed I ’d never seen the film E.T.

If, like I was, you’re a Fergburger virgin, here’s a quick rundown. Fergburger is a Queenstown institution, having served huge, juicy burgers since 2001. It’s pretty much a rite of passage for anyone heading to Queenstown, and many claim that they’d swim back to New Zealand for a bite of the burgery goodness.
