Sparkys Backpackers

We’ve secured props from the movie “The World’s Fastest Indian” starring Anthony Hopkins. The film was shot on location both here in Invercargill and on the salt flats in Utah, USA.

We offer you the thrill of speed and the passion of a man who wanted to push himself and his machine beyond the impossible. You can view the movie for free at night, and if the night is fine we’ll have a chin wag and sing along around our bonfire in the backyard. Bring your instruments!

Sparky’s is a relaxing place, chilled out in fact, stay a night, a few days or even a week. Sparky is currently renovating his garage as a tribute to Burt Munro, (Sparky style) atmosphere included. Sparky himself is full of passion for his business (and it shows) and welcomes guests from all around the world. Do yourself a favour and stay at Sparky’s. Be sure to check out big bird, when you arrive…

While at Sparky’s try out Sparky’s world famous 3 ingredient chocolate cake (donations greatly accepted) humour no extra cost.
