The Catlins 2/3
Day 13 (29.1.2013): The Catlins
I love costal rainforest! The lush green, heaps of fern & moss, and waterfalls!
Was a big day today, but a great one!
Sea-made caves/ caverns, more or less wide and long, accessible only at low tide.
Nice walk through costal rainforest, then along the beach in loose sand.
Matai & Horseshoe Falls:
Again nice walk through rainforest which was topped off by two waterfalls – some more opportunity for slow water pictures.
Catlin River Walkway:
2hr hike along the catlin river in costal rainforest – again. This is so beautiful 😀
Last waterfall of the day 😉 also very worthwhile doing.
Penguin spotting at the “Petrified Forest” in Curio Bay in the evening. Seen quite some only in the far distance, but one little fellow walked by pretty close. Looks rather exhausting how he makes his way walking through the rocks with the pinnacles and then hopping from rock to rock till he reaches his nest in the beginning bushes. The “Petrified Forest” is named after a very rare occasion when some trees were made to stone within months.

I didn’t plan to but I think I have to stay another day in the catlins.
