Departing at 9:00am from Mohua Park, or pick ups by arrangement, this tour requires only a moderate level of fitness. This guided tour includes visits to some of the Catlins' most beautiful buys, including Cannibal, Purakaunui and Tautuku. While at these bays it's likely that you'll get to see Sea Lions, although this is not guaranteed. Tours last for 5 - 6 hours.
You'll also get to visit the Florence Hill Lookout, Lake Wilkie and the famous Nugget Point Lighthouse.
Of real interest, and perhaps the photographic highlight of this wonderful tour are the beautiful waterfalls; Purakaunui, McLean and Matai Falls.
Walking times on this tour include a maximum of 40 minutes one way, with walks to most locations around 20 minutes each way. Generally gentle walks with some inclines, with steps on some tracks.
