Hidden New Zealand Gem
“The Catlins region of New Zealand is one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets” and “has such variety, including stunning waterfalls, amazing wildlife and beautiful beaches”, writes Nicola Barnard for The Huffington Post. In her article Barnard recommends eight things to do in this area.
- Head to the petrified forest in Curio Bay to see yellow-eyed penguins “come ashore and waddle across the beach to nest.”
- Visit the Cathedral Caves – “the walk that takes you to the caves down through the forest and along the beach is beautiful,” according to the article.
- Visit Slope Point – the most southern point on mainland New Zealand and enjoy the beautiful scenery. “Don’t forget to check out the famous windswept trees on the drive out here”, writes Barnard.
- For great photos head to Purakaunui Falls. “The three-tiered waterfall is simply stunning,” according to Barnard.
- Head to Porpoise Bay in summer or autumn to see hector dolphins, the world’s smallest and rarest of dolphins.
