Where you’ll be

Omaui, Southland, New Zealand

Omaui is a quiet sea side village of 30 houses, there are no shops or cafes.
There are bush walks here, the longer one taking about an hour each way. There are ancient Rata trees to enjoy, large, twisted and gnarly. A multitude of ferns and a wide selection of trees native to the South. See if you can hear a rare red crested kakariki chattering.
An expansive beach, often deserted, is yours to enjoy. You can beach comb here for hours or just listen to the sound of the sea and watch the sunset from the dunes.
