Karitane Attractions

Karitane is a costal town on the mouth of the Waikouaiti River, and has some commercial sea fishing vessels and a paua farm. It has an important history, including that of the early Maori, whalers, the first white settlers in Otago and Sir Truby King. 

Karitane has a primary school, a community hall, a small shop, holiday accommodation, a cafe, a swimming beach, and an inlet formed by the Waikouaiti River. There are active community groups in the area, ranging from the Hall Committee to the Fishing Club, to the Waikouaiti/Karitane River Care Group
