Pictures from photo gallery: "Catlins"


A notoriously dangerous coastline, the Catlins coast on the South Island of New Zealand, has been the site of many ship wrecks over the years with the most notable being the passenger steamer "Tararua" which ran aground on the reefs off Waipapap Point.

The Waipapa Point lighthouse was one of the last wooden lighthouses built in New Zealand and was erected at this site in 1884.
