Self-catering cottages, ecotours and walks

NZ MapThe Catlins region in southern New Zealand is a rugged natural retreat where wilderness and farmland coexist, where beech and podocarp rainforest with abundant native birdlife still extends from hill tops to the coast. The headlands and beaches of the varied coast are home to sub-antarctic wildlife such as yellow-eyed penguins, oceanic seabirds and sealions. The Catlins is a place for those who love nature to stay a while and enjoy the freedom of the many ecotourism opportunities for exploration.
