    The Catlins

    December 20, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    We were on the way to the Fiordlands and Milford Sound after a quick stop in Dunedin. This would have meant leaving the southernmost part of the South Island out. But just before the junction we changed our mind spontaneously and decided to visit the area called "The Caitlins".
    The most famous attraction here is "Nugget Point", an incredibly popular and picturesque and lighthouse located on top of high cliffs. Besides that we visited some Waterfalls, the Cathedral cove and the Gypsy Museum.
    Especially the "The lost gypsy gallery" is worth to mention as it is something I've never seen before. A guy collects basically trash and builds apparatus from it, some with more sense than others. His waggon is full with small pushable, touchable stuff and it can keep you entertained for hours to explore this little gem.

    February 13, 2018 in New Zealand

    Wir fuhren nach Pounawea, obwohl unser Fenster immer noch kaputt war. Unterdessen ist es ganz zersprungen, wir konnten es jedoch mit Karton abkleben. In den Catlins gibt es einige schöne Orte zu sehen. Zuerst besuchten wir den Nugget Point, von wo man auch Robben sehen konnte. Anschliessend fuhren wir weiter zum Surat Bay. Dort konnte wir Seelöwen von Nahem betrachten. Zum Schluss machten wir einen Abstecher zu den Purakaunui Falls. Man fühlte sich dort wie im Regenwald.Read more
