Tides Getting Here Clutha Attractions

"The Catlins" is one of New Zealand's finest eco-destinations where wildlife rules the beaches and rainforest rolls down the valleys all the way to the sea.

Rugged splendour, rustic charm and the wonderfully slower pace of Catlins time are what it is all about!

Getting back to nature is the main idea here. Cell phone coverage is limited and there's no power, however Mick and Deb's flair and ingenuity more than make up for it!

They have used 100 year old recycled timber for the floors and furniture (clever & creative).

There's a coal range for cooking and heating the water from the creek so you can soak in a cast iron bath.

Composting toilets which help the fruit trees, alongside a verdant vegetable garden, of which you can pick your own.
