The Catlins - part 2

So this is a continuation of my travel blog around New Zealand. 

Cathedral Caves

Cathedral Caves are a cool set of cliff found on Waikato Beach. This is a natural formation of caves that have taken tens of thousands of years to form. They have been created by waves eroding he sandstone. The area is in fact Maori owned land.

Curio Bay

Curio Bay is close to the southern most part of the South Island. It is famous for its ‘Petrified Forest’. Dating back over 170 million years, the forest trees died and became fossilised, leading to a stone like material covering the bay. If you look closely you can see the outlines of trees. At Curio Bay you can see yellow-eyed penguins - the rarest penguins on the planet. Sadly, they didn’t show up for me :(.

Check out the rock - it’s obviously got some wood markings in it. Pretty cool right!

Purakaunui waterfall

The Purakanui waterfall is found inside a forest n Owaka. As you can see from the pictures, it is quite beautiful!

Waihol Lake

Here’s a beautiful lake in Waihola. As you can see the weather picked up and was absolutely stunning. Loads of camper vans were packed here and as you can tell its a great place to have a breakfast
