The Catlins, NZ

Jump to last reply

Is there a best way to drive through the Catlins? North to South? Or South to North?

We plan on doing a round trip: Dunedin, Gore, Invercargill, Owaka, Dunedin. But like all round trips, it can be done in the reverse direction. Whichever way we do it, we plan on staying a night in the area, at Owaka possibly.

Sometimes the direction can make a difference to what impact the scenery makes. I always find, for example, that driving south from Blenheim to Kaikoura is a lot more dramatic scenery-wise, than doing the same trip in the opposite direction. Just wondered if the same applies to the Catlins.

Thanks for any help.
