Tourist Information

Get maps and local tips at the small Owaka Museum & Catlins Information Centre and the even smaller Waikawa Museum & Information Centre. En route to the Catlins, you can also grab lots of info from the i-SITEs in Invercargill and Balclutha.

There are no banks in the Catlins but there’s an ATM at the Four Square supermarket in Owaka. Most businesses accept credit cards but we recommend bringing some cash.
