This seaside village in The Catlins is famous for it's surfing as well as one of New Zealand’s most iconic lookouts. Nugget Point showcases amazing views, a historic lighthouse and wildlife. All just a short drive from Clutha District's central town of Balclutha.

Kaka Point settlement is named after the Kaka parrot and still has a beautiful bush walk. The most famous resident was Maori Poet, Hone Tuwhare, who spent many years living in an old fashioned crib. There is a brewery, fabulous function venue, plenty of places to stay and a pub by the beach for a Southern drink and meal. You can even kayak around the breath-taking Nuggets, named after Captain Cook because when the sun shines on them, they look like rocks of gold.

Locals love where they live, find out more at and make sure you check out the Catlins Care Code.
