Owaka Mu­seum

NZ Life & Leisure - - Destination/ The Catlins -

Sawmilling and ship­wrecks have played a con­sid­er­able part in the Catlins’ his­tory, the harsh coast­line and con­di­tions re­spon­si­ble for 25 wrecks be­tween 1839 and 2000. Mem­o­ra­bilia from these ships and other in­sights into the area’s his­tory are on dis­play in the well-cu­rated Owaka mu­seum, which is also the in­for­ma­tion cen­tre for the re­gion. owaka­mu­seum.org.nz
