Owaka

In the heart of The Catlins, Owaka is the perfect place to explore this natural wonderland. The town’s Maori name means “the place of canoe”. A 30 minute drive from Balclutha, you can explore the historic train tunnel at Tunnel Hill located on the way. The last train ride through the tunnel was in 1971. The tunnel now serves as a fun walkway, but be sure to take a torch! Jacks Blowhole, named after the Maori Chief Tuhawaiki (known to European settlers as Bloody Jack), is well worth a visit. more

South of Owaka, be sure to visit the majestic Purakaunui and Matai Falls, both of which are only short walks from the respective car parks. Purakaunui Bay has the highest cliffs in The Catlins. For the experienced surfer, it is famous for its Big Wave season during winter, with some of the biggest waves ever ridden in New Zealand. Long Point (irihuka) is also worth a visit for the opportunity to view yellow-eyed penguin.
