Catlins

36

The Catlins coast is located along the south eastern corner of the South Island and is renowned for it's remote and beautiful coastline, wildlife and rainforest. There's nearly nothing between the Catlins and Antarctica so it can be warm and sunny one minute and wild and stormy the next which adds to the drama of an already dramatic area. The region has a lot of Maori and European history and has some wonderful geological features including the petrified forest at Curio Bay and no they're not just a bunch of scared trees, it's a fossilised forest. If you're lucky you'll see penguins, dolphins or sea lions while you're in the area and there's a lighthouse at Kaka Point. Everyone likes a lighthouse.
