Owaka, Catlins, Southern Coast, New Zealand

Owaka, Catlins, New Zealand

Owaka was first settled in the 1860’s.  Like so many settlements in the Catlins sawmilling
and  timber exports were its main industries in earlier times. 
Owaka today is the largest of the towns in the Catlins area. 
It is the ideal base from which to explore the wonderful natural features of the area including
the Barrs Falls, the Catlins Lake, Jacobs Hill, Macdonalds Hill and Mount Misery.
