The owners of the Catlins Eco Tourism Resort at McLean Falls, have commissioned the Apple I-Tunes App (plus Android) for free download to benefit the whole Catlins region.
The free app which is for download off the internet or data plan, using the QR code on their website, www.catlinsnz.com will allow users to enjoy all the Catlins has to offer or just type in "Catlins" from your smart phone.
Here is just one comment we have had:

I replied: "Come see us and have a coffee at the Whistling Frog Cafe & Bar, when you are done. I want to hear all about it!" Paul.
The region is not presently served by cell phone coverage although, Vodafone has commenced construction of two new cell towers which will give reception to both the North and South Catlins. The varied topography of the region makes it difficult to get reliable coverage in this remote region of New Zealand.
The free App will allow travellers to have instant access to the sights and history of the Catlins with their Smart Phones as they drive around this stunning coastal area of New Zealand.
