Waitati Guide: Spend Less, Do More

Welcome to Waitati

Twenty or so years ago this interesting town of Waitati was known as the hippie centre of the south island. A place that appeals to those pursuing an alternative lifestyle, Waitati is a small seaside town at Blueskin Bay, 19km north of Dunedin's Central Business District.

The Waitati River flows through the bay and out to sea. The Orokonui Ecosanctuary is found here. Doctors Point is a great place for picnics and bush walks and is home to a variety of wildlife.

Doctors Point Beach is definitely worth a visit. It feels so remote that you feel like there is literally no one around. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the blue penguins that live in the area.
