Usually tourists skip this region. While Rotorua and the Fiordland are rather crowded places, we didn’t meet tons of people in the Catlins. On the other hand, also not many kiwis live here permanently – only around 1200 people. That’s a pity! The Catlins, located in the south of the South Island, is just loaded with spectacular landscapes, wonders of nature and unique animals! We still haven’t decided, but I think the Catlins may be the most beautiful region we visited in New Zealand… Look at the pics below and decide yourself!
