PAPATOWAI COUNTRY STORE
A fun, rustic, beach store located in the Papatowai settlement of the Catlins- offering a wide range of grocery needs, local information and 24hr self service fuel.
The store is in close walking distance to the Papatowai beach and estuary which is great for kayaking and taking memorable photographs. The estuary is lined with ancient Pohutakawa trees which flower over Christmas. There is an abundance of native bird life- flocks of Royal Spoonbill fish and roost along the estuary. Sea Lions regularly visit the sheltered bay with their calves or for fishing, they can also be seen basking in the sun.
There are numerous outdoor activities within walking distance- 'Lost Gypsy' gizmo gallery, Shank's interactive bush walk, Picnic Point, Kings Rock, and the Old Coach Road bush walk along the estuary.
Stop in and say g'day!
