We had yet another stay at this Luxury four bedroom Bungalow which has all the facilities required and fantastic views which are spectacular. The night time views show the milky way and the area is breathtaking. A 5 Star accommodation which we would recommend to any one, unbeatable value for money. Faultless.

First stop was to Waipapa Point and the lighthouse there. As with all the lighthouses, this one is now automated – the last lighthouse keeper left in 1976. The Catlins Coast is also known as the Shipwreck Coast and here at Waipapa was the worst disaster. In 1881 the ...
Drove down to Slope Point the most southern point of the South Island, it is very remote and we had to travel for 16km on an unsealed road which was very stoney and dusty the car is filthy but no point cleaning it until we move on.
