Richie McCaw’s 10 New Zealand Must Do’s - Catlins - listed as #1...
1. Wildlife Experiences in the Catlins | Southland
This incredible coastline is home to the world’s smallest dolphins, most endangered sea lions and rarest penguins. Visitors to Curio Bay during the summer and autumn can often see Hector’s dolphins playing in the surf, and at low tide you can view the 180-million-year-old Jurassic forest which is revealed on the shoreline. Low tide is also the time to go to Cathedral Caves which have amazing acoustics and are one of the world’s largest sea cave complexes.
“I’d love to have a family holiday exploring the Catlins” says Richie.
