Where you’ll be

Karitane, Otago, New Zealand

We are situated between the Waikouaiti river and the Pacific ocean. A few steps one way and you are on a beautiful white sand beach, a few steps the other way from the carpark and you are alongside a river. Follow the river upstream to our local shop which has a small cafe attached, very good for an Italian dinner on summer weekends.
Follow the river to its mouth and a cliff side walk around the historic Huirapa peninsula.
There are often Hooker sea lions on the beach and they have even stayed in my garden, this is unlikely to happen while you are here, but if they are around I will warn you.
