Have YOU thought of holding your special function in the beautiful Catlins??
The Catlins is still a largely untouched area of the South Island of New Zealand. It has stunning landscapes, unbelievable coastal scenery with sandy beaches and towering cliffs, luxuriant rainforests and waterfalls, and it is home to yellow-eyed penguins and New Zealand sea lions.
There are ample opportunities for beach and bush walks, bird watching, tramping, fishing, boating, wildlife viewing and just relaxing!
THE CATLINS – THE FORGOTTEN COAST? THE UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE!
River Ridge Retreat is a slice of nature’s paradise, nestled in the heart of the stunning Catlins.
It is an all in one wedding venue that includes accommodation, ceremony options, reception, pampering for the girls, activities for the boys. Celebrate all night long and have your wedding last three days, experience some amazing Catlins photo opportunities, and experience the wedding of your dreams.
