Why not fly into the Catlins and land on our remote airstrip. It’s a sloping strip, 300 meters on the grass. Land up hill.
Stay overnight, dine at the Frog and stay in a real comfy room, cabin or self contained chalet.
The beaches around the Catlins are composed of compacted sand and provide the landing strip with a difference at low tide. Check out the Cathedral Caves.
Stewart Island is just a short flight south and over the Strait.
