Cathedral Caves

An impressive series of sea caves on the Catlins Coast at the northern end of Waipati beach, south of Tautuku. One of the most popular tourist attractions in the area.

From the car park at the end of the 2km access road (an old logging road) there is a pleasant 20 minute walk through natural podocarp and kamahi forest, over a metalled track leading down to a 10 minute walk along Waipati beach. At the south end of Waipati beach is Chaslands Head, the historic Catlins site of the shipwreck of The Otago.

The caves are only accessible 2 hours either side of low tide. Access to the caves from the road crosses private land, with a user fee being charged.
