Southern Scenic Road Trip: Wildlife Safari Road Trip, The Catlins

Waikawa Museum

Waikawa Museum @Venture Southland Waikawa Museum @Venture Southland

The original settlement Waikawa was a former whaling station and is now a tiny vestige of what it was.  The Museum is housed in a restored school building.  There is a substantial collection of photographs, memorabilia and adzes from pre-European times.  Artefacts range from farm machinery, whaling, gold mining, saw milling and stone quarrying. There are picnic tables, toilets open when the museum is open. For heritage trail fans this collection is worth a visit.  Check museum opening hours as it is staffed by volunteers.
