We absolutely loved our wedding down there, it was perfect.

It really felt like it was about us. We had the whole venue to ourselves for the whole weekend.

How To Find RiverRidge Retreat – Natures Paradise…

Getting here is easy! We are far enough to get away from it all, but not too far to get here!...

Drive 10kms south of Owaka on the Papatowai Highway.
Look for the Catlins River Walk sign, turn at the Catlins River Walk sign and drive 3.5 km to us.

You know you are getting close as you drive on the gravel road with the beautiful Catlins River on your right, birds, wildlife, sheep and cattle surround you at differing times of the year.

Look for the Catlins River Walk sign, turn at the Catlins River Walk sign and drive 3.5 km to us.

When you come from the south you are treated to a panoramic view of the Houipapa and Tawanui Valleys in the Catlins. After winding down what is known as Gibbs hill, the sign you are looking for is within a kilometre from the bottom of the hill.
