We were so lucky to enjoy incredible weather for the majority of our winter South Island roadtrip. We had grey skies while we spent the day in Dunedin, so with fingers crossed for a half-decent sunset, we drove down along the southwestern coast of New Zealand towards the Catlins.
Nugget Point is one of the most famous stops in the Catlins Forest Park, a region filled with waterfalls, forest, winding roads and the South Island's southernmost point, Slope Point.
Somehow, we nailed the timing and were there for probably the greatest sunset Nugget Point has ever experienced (I can't say for sure, but I definitely felt lucky...). Have a peek at these photos to see for yourself:
