North Catlins

The Catlins is a major highlight of the Southern Scenic Route. Situated off the beaten track, The Catlins encompasses the area between Kaka Point and Fortrose, spanning both Clutha and Southland Districts. The Catlins is an area of great contrasts and natural beauty with an abundance of wildlife. From magnificent coastal cliffs and headlands, long sweeping beaches, coves and sandy bays; to extensive temperate rainforests, waterfalls and rolling farmland, The Catlins is a fascinating, rugged place. The climate is temperate with a generous annual rainfall which nurtures the predominantly green landscape. more

The largest township is Owaka with a population of almost 400 people. Other settlements in The Catlins are Kaka Point, Pounawea, Tahakopa, Papatowai, Tokanui, Waikawa and Fortrose. In an area known for its remoteness and low population, The Catlins is really something special, allow plenty of time to explore!
