As though the Catlins region hasn't enough to offer, it also has some of the most stunning sunsets in the Pacific!

The Catlins is most known for its rare penguins (Yellow Eyed), dolphins (Hector's), and seals (New Zealand Fur Seal), plus a multitude of other "not so rare" animals. Given it's location on the south eastern corner of the south island of New Zealand, it is also known for its wild weather. In an instant the scene changes from brilliant sunshine - which promises a spectacular sunset over the Pacific Ocean, to tightly packed thunderous clouds threatening a down pour.
