We’ve gone 1794 miles across the Tasman Sea and have arrived in Balclutha, New Zealand. According to the 2006 census they had a population of 4062.
Look at that amazing bridge and the water below. Calling all fisherman – trout and salmon fishing are highlights of this place. I can guess what we are having for dinner!
Balclutha is very close to Catlins Forest Park and about an hour from Dunedin. The mirror like river holds a secret – gold was disccovered there. Lucky people!
One of the truly delightful experiences one can have in Balclutha is a visit to the bird aviary in Naish Park – lots of avian residents.
Need some picnic food? New World Balclutha can help you out there – it is a New Zealand owned grocery.

There are also lots of seals to look at – just look, don’t touch though ’cause they bite. We don’t want any ouch’s on this trip.
See you next time for C! Enjoy Balclutha.
