Just lovely....

We have lovely memories of our drive along the peninsular road, stopping on our way to watch the Dolphins playing in the water. This is a lovely part of the world.

We spent 2 nights on the peninsula staying in delightful accommodation (called Possums End) 1 km from Portbello and ate good evening meals at the Portobello Hotel. We didn't do any of the pricey wildlife tours but drove to Tairora Head and saw Royal Albatrosses flying around the headland and went into the visitor centre for free, drove to beautiful... More

Wow. This was an amazing, beautiful drive that rewarded us with sea lion spots on more than one occasion. We didn't actually go in to the albatross centre but did visit the tiny cove nearby ( not allowed on beach but there is a viewing area). We took the Portobello road out and the high road back. Definitely do both.... More

Well worth the trip out of the city, along the bay, beautiful scenery. Watch out for other drivers not taking too much care on the roads

We went to see the albatrosses on the cliffs. We had some fantastic views of them nesting and coming in to land from the hide on the cliff. You can also see a short film about them in the centre.

Follow the winding roads along the seashore or over the hills to a plethora of beautiful beaches, rocky headlands and unique viewpoints. The land and seascapes provide a natural sanctuary for marine wildlife and an opportunity for visitors to view them in their own environment. You could spend a week wandering the largely deserted beaches an see something new every... More
