Wild South: The Catlins and Stewart Island

Nugget Pt

10th - 18th March 2022

Explore the Wild South from Dunedin to Stewart Island via the windswept and rugged region of the Catlins on the south east corner of the South Island. The breathtaking scenery from rocky coastlines, huge sea cliffs and sandy beaches to the lush rainforests, waterfalls and bush clad ridges is awe-inspiring. On Stewart Island enjoy local bush walks, a charter cruise of Paterson Inlet and discover the abundant wildlife on Ulva Island - a predator free bird sanctuary.
