Colac Bay, New Zealand

Right down the road from Riverton sits Colac Bay.┬áThe town hugs the bay, with sandy beaches, and has a popular surf spot known as Trees- where the beach breaks to the left and right. As we were exploring the area we happened upon a surf competition that demonstrated the true flavor of the town. With one pub/cafe, caravan park, craft shop, community hall, and Marae – surfing really is their pride and joy!

Riverton, Southland

IMG_5225

This weekend I visited Riverton and Colic Bay in Southland , New Zealand… Riverton is one of the oldest towns in NZ. This little town is very remote with a handful of shops and cafes and is known for their beaches and surfing spots. The town is the perfect spot for a relaxing weekend away from Queenstown, and it’s just 2 hours drive.
