A beautiful stretch of land which you can easily explore on the way to the Royal Albatross Centre. Lots of small but attractive beaches and picture-postcard views back to the mainland. Parking along the main road can be problematic in some areas, but well worth the drive nontheloess.

We drove around the peninsula while including a boat trip, and a night visit to the Royal Albatross Centre to see the blue penguins come in from the sea. Stunning views, amazing sunset.

We went there in the evening and immediately ran into a seal and the albatrosses flew over our heads (including a sht load of gulls). We didn't see penquins.. I think it is a shame that they put a fence to make money out of this wildlife..

The comment on the bus to penguin place was very informativ. At the Peguin Place they do a very precious job. The cruise in the harbour was very interesting. They make sure you get all the goodies.

We did a day self drive tour to explore the peninsular. Drove down most of the roads, very pretty and not much traffic. Visited the Albatross Centre - see separate review and also the walk to Lovers leap and Sandfly bay. Great coastal scenery.

We had a great few days in this area despite the wet, foggy, windy days. I can imagine the views on clear days! We will visit again and take in more of the sights the peninsular has to offer.

It's a winding road with spectacular views and a great destination at the Albatross Nature Reserve. Take your time and enjoy. If you're in a rush skip it, you'll get car sick.

This was our first outing in New Zealand and it set the tone for an incredible vacation! We booked a tour through Viator that was offered by Back to Nature Tours (owner: Chris). This was a great choice and we had a sunny day for our adventure. We were picked up at 9:15am by the tour guide, driven through town... More

Preferred the high road. Able to see some sea lions and some seals without paying any entry fees or joining any tours. Lovely drive. Nice views. Love the baby seals with their mummies.
