“Great Scenery”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

The scenic route along the water is wonderful - windy but so interesting & we then headed up the mountain. The road there was very windy, steep & narrow but we got fantastic views. A visit to the Royal Albatross Centre is a must. The views of the ocean & seeing the wildlife there is very interesting. We saw lots of different birds & saw seals as well.

“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

make sure that if you're wanting to see "YEP's" (Yellow eyed penguins) that you dont look for them during molting season, that the guide books and the tourist spots dont tell you is from Jan-Mar, they dont leave their nests.
