Welcome to our cozy cottage at Aurora Downs Farm on the Southern Scenic Route between Fortrose and Curio Bay. 10 minutes from Slope point, 8 from Waipapa, 15 from Curio, you will be spoiled for choice. This is a one double bedroom, one small living room/kitchen space with en-suite shower room.

The space
This cute farm cottage is central to all the must see destinations in the South Catlins area. Visit sea lions at Waipapa, Hector's dolphins at Porpoise Bay (in summer), Yellow Eyed penguins at Curio Bay and the petrified forest... the list goes on.

Guest access
You have the small two room cottage to yourself. You are welcome take advantage of the garden and you have your own deck and chairs outside your door.

Other things to note
The South Catlins is rural so you are advised to bring your provisions as the nearest supermarket is in Invercargill. There are three local cafes open in high season, a beach shop at Curio or a dairy, garage and tavern at Tokanui.
Also as we are a working farm you are welcome to take a walk around but you must tell us so we can advise of the hazards for health and safety reasons.

Location

Haldane, Southland, New Zealand

The area mainly consists of farms and is very rural. The coastline is rugged and beautiful. The Waipohatu bush walk is a lovely short bush walk even in the rain, but leave the longer waterfall walk for a dry day.
