An out-of-the-way corner in the south-east of the South Island, The Catlins is now gaining the recognition it deserves as a beautiful, relatively unspoilt area with many natural attractions, including that rare thing on the east coast, native forest. Neville Peat introduces the history, geology and attractions of the region – its flora, wildlife, bush walks, caves and waterfalls – before tracing the journey along the stunning Southern Scenic Route linking Otago, Southland and Fiordland.
NEVILLE PEAT, a Dunedin-based writer and photographer, is the author of numerous guides to southern New Zealand natural features and attractions, including the prize-winning Wild series with Brian Patrick.
