My place is located in the wonderfully scenic Catlins. The small township of Owaka is just 150 metres away from the Lodge. The town has a local pub, cafe, restaurant and 4 Square supermarket. There is a local visitor centre with a Museum.
The estuary and beach are just a 4km to 10km drive away with lots of other short walks and sights to visit. These include Nugget Point, Kaka Point, Purakanui Falls etc.
