Owaka Teapotland Teapots and Fairies

Teapots of all sizes and shapes in the main street of Owaka

Teapotland Teapot Bird Roost

Even a bird roost shaped like a teapot

Named for the Maori place of the canoe, Owaka is the largest settlement in the naturally beautiful Catlins with a small population of around 300. The undoubted highlight is the quirky display of teapots in every shape, size, colour and heritage in a garden and neighbouring house on the main road through the tiny town. The letterbox comes in a classy white ceramic appearance while doves thrive in their teapot-shaped roost. The house next door showcases a variety of more valuable teapots including a fine collection of English countryside versions. On leaving, toss a couple of dollars in their donation box – not surprisingly, a teapot.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
