48 Hours In The Deep South Of New Zealand | Reveal NZ Ep. 22

Reveal New Zealand Ep 22 in the depths of the South Island. We’re exploring in the Catlins, Nugget Point Lighthouse, Nugget Point Lighthouse, Purakanui Falls, Curio Bay, the Petrified Forest and finally travel down to Bluff for the famous Bluff Oysters! It’s a BIG few days…⬇ More Below ⬇

This is the largest vlog from this New Zealand road trip and travel vlog series so far! We’re in the depths of the South Island exploring The Catlins initially. It’s an area well known for it’s incredible landscapes full of natural beauty, rare and endangered wildlife, rainforests, sandy beaches and waterfalls. It’s home to Nugget Point and one of New Zealand’s oldest lighthouses, Nugget Point Lighthouse.

This is such an enormous vlog that typing out everything in the video would take longer than the edit itself haha. But if you’re reading this for information on what, where, how, why etc feel free to leave a comment and we’ll get back to you.

But in short we also:

— walk the Purakanui track which is only a 10 minute walk down to the Purakanui Falls
— Stay at Curioscape campgrounds at Curio Bay
— Explore the coast line and the Petrified Forest
— Drive down to the bottom of New Zealand to a spot known as Bluff, to taste the famous Bluff Oysters

Reveal NZ is a 20+ part video series, so make sure you’re subscribed to follow along with all episodes here: More than just taking a motorhome around New Zealand, it’s about how to travel New Zealand, the top tourist spots, the hidden local gems, incredible day trips, extreme activities, amazing accommodation and a spot of wining and dining… It’s about making you feel like you’re along for the travels with us, so grab a drink of your poison, sit back and get ready for 5 weeks driving in a campervan hire from Auckland to The Catlins.

    You guys are so awesome! Definitely two people I could hang out with. Keep up the great work!

    So pleased you ventured this far south…we had a holiday home at Nugget point, you passed it on the way to the lighthouse and I've spent many holidays there as a child..
    Bluff oysters are the best in the world, pleased you got there, however, disappointed you didn't spend time in Invercargill…it's not the toilet that people north of the Bombays think it is..
    Lots to see and do..
    Yes, it's been a bit windy, but wait a few hours…!!
    By the way…no floods here, how's the North Island been lately…😏😏

    Oh maaan, I'm really homesick now! I practically used to live at Curio Bay campsite and surf all around the Catlins. Best surfing beach break in NZ (of course I'm biased). Great vid, thank you. Now I want a dozen Bluff oysters for breakfast…

  4. Jina Adara

    You didn’t have blue cod! And our weather down here is not thaaat bad. We have great days too. Come back in summer 🙂

    I don't know why but I feel so annoyed for you guys this video hasn't been up for more then a day and already has 2 dislikes it's so unnecessary for people to show that they dislike something i loved the video btw I've been a subscriber for ages, love it❤️

  6. Philip Guacci

    I heard of Bluff Oysters in an ad for NZ lotto. This was on TV2, yes I got addicted to Shortland Street in Rarotonga since my 1997 visit. It was great to see the very blowy south of the South Island. Great video. Cheers guys. From Philip in Melbourne.

    I love oysters and prefer them raw with a few drops of japanese ponzu sauce on it and nothing else. And I love chewing them. Delicious! I continue to be amazed how you are finding places that have nobody around! Those waves looked treacherous by the way. But a rugged beauty like Big Sur here in California. Loved the vlog and series!!

    Those oysters are "AmaaaaZing." 😀 Where I live in Blackpool UK we still have the oyster bar right on the Promenade. Back in the day oysters were a favourite of the mill workers from the surrounding cities that came here and were cheap food. I spent £11 there and had numerous tubs of seafood and three really fresh oysters and I am with you – there is nothing better. The NZ ones are 4 times the size though!

  9. Damian Aimers

    it has been 30 years since I have been down south of NZ. Makes me want to go back to NZ and take my kids on a camper-van trip. Thanks guys, great series

    I looooooooove oysters, but I've only ever had them raw. I'm going to have to make having battered oysters a new goal in my life 😊

  11. Kay Libson

    Catlins is my favorite place to visit. Lucky to have family in Owaka and Pounawea so Purakanui Falls are a regular trip when I get over from Melbourne, AUS

  12. When Adventure Knox

    Everything in this episode reminded me so much of Scotland. The sheep with lambs, there being no where to eat because the odd place that does exist was shut, the crazy winds, raw wild beaches and coastlines, the seafood, something tells me I'll like the deep south when I make it there! Sad to know it's coming to an end soon though 😞

  13. Bee Oh El

    Well lads all I can say is that ye are brilliant and the video was great 👍👏😘
    Love from 🇮🇪💚☘😘

  14. Stephanie Gruenberg

    Haircut looks great Daneger! Love watching your vlogs, you both are so fun and pleasant. Even when things don't go the way you hope, you're still chipper and upbeat. LOVED seeing Purakanui falls through you guys! So beautiful!

  15. Rob B

    You had much better weather in The Catlins than I've ever had!

    I'll have to do the falls and Nugget Point next time I'm there though 👍🏻

  16. Shaun Garratt

    Great video, very impressive scenery once again. Glad Aston survived the high winds, did look kind of scary making your way along some of those roads. Good that you both enjoyed the oysters in the end: another fear faced for Stacey, haha. I've only had cooked oyster myself, but would definitely give those raw ones a try.

  17. Thenotorious JOC

    Great video! Brilliantly made as always! Keep up the good work guys 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇳🇿
