    Purakaunui, Matai and Horseshoe Falls

    January 10, 2020 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    I woke up at 5 o'clock this morning, a perfect time to go for the sunset at Nugget Point but unfortunately the weather is not with me today, it's super cloudy and not worth it to even drive and give it a try.
    Good, I was going there yesterday evening.
    I tried to sleep a little bit more, but a Bellbird was singing so loud somewhere closed to my car, that it was impossible to fall asleep again 🙈😂

    So I got up and had breakfast and then was leaving he campground early. I anyway needed to leave early today to catch the low tide later.

    The first stop was at the Purakaunui Falls. Really nice and especially wide waterfall! ( First two pictures)
    I am now exploring the Catlins!
    So beautiful area, lush green hills. It looks more like the north island here!
    It's pretty cloudy but dry and the wind is not to bad, yet!

    The next quick stop was at the Matai ( 4. picture) and the Horseshoe Falls ( last two pictures).

    A nice short walk here and two nice waterfalls as well!
    I had to hurry a little bit to still be in time for my next stop.
