Catlins Coast

The Catlins Coast is a major highlight of the Southern Scenic Route.  Situated off the beaten track, the Catlins encompasses the area between Kaka Point and Fortrose. 

The entry/exit points are Fortrose, 45km's from Invercargill and 30km's from Balclutha in the north. 

This is a wonderful drive with some lovely places to stop and enjoy the scenery.
