Catlins Sea lion pups 2019

I thought you might like these photos of the 2019 season’s New Zealand sea lion pups around Jacks Bay and the Catlins Lake area. We think there were around 7 but hard to tell as they move around a bit. Anyway we feel very privileged to have been able to watch them grow up over…

Burnett Quarry Reserve

LIMESTONE QUARRY – BURNETT QUARRY RESERVE Heading back to Mt Somers from the Ashburton lakes we noticed a small bridge and sign on the side of the road and stopped to investigate. It was a small reserve with a Limestone cottage well worth a visit.

Nelson Creek

Nelson Creek We thought the camp site at Nelson Creek would be a good spot for a couple of days exploring the surrounding area, which it was but we had no idea what an interesting place it is with a great camp site and walks.
