"One Day, One Place "

Stay awhile

You have come all this way, to the bottom of the world. Next stop, Antarctica.

The Catlins, steeped in history and swathed in the mists of time. Old whaling stations, home to a petrified forest, cascading waterfalls and wildlife that is thriving in an uncorrupted eco environment. 

So many people think of passing through the Catlins en route to other places. So many people are wrong.... The Catlins is a holiday in itself! 

“TWENTY years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain

Take your time and sit awhile. Explore the Catlins one day, one place, one day at a time.
