Wild landscape, with very

few tourists

Situated off the beaten track, with very few tourists, the Catlins encompasses the area between Kaka Point and Fortrose. It’s an area of rural heartland and podocarp forests, rugged coastlines, hidden lakes and stunning waterfalls. The natural landscapes are varied and the wildlife is extraordinary. The Catlins has dynamic weather conditions. Rainy days bring fresh growth to pastures and forest, while strong winds shape the forests and raise impressive waves along the coast. Vivid sunsets and long twilight evenings lead on to ideal star-gazing opportunities.
