These photos are from perhaps my favourite part of New Zealand’s South Island – the sparsely populated, less touristy Catlins.

The Catlins are on the southeastern corner of the South Island – some amazing cool climate rainforest right next to the ocean and with rural areas next door.  Absolutely gorgeous, peaceful and feels beautifully isolated, even though it’s only a couple of hours from Dunedin and Invercargill.

I have many more photos of this beautiful area and am really enjoying going through them properly – will post more shortly.
