Parked the car at the bottom car park and looked up at the steep path and thought.......you've got to be kidding!!! (It looks really steep). In minutes you are at he top of that bit and think....well that was easy. We made our way along the track. Every view was spectacular, overlooking cliffes and bays way below. Seals lazing on the rocks Down below. The view in the background along the way is always the snow capped mountains. Every view is postcard perfect.

We didn't do the whole walk which is about a 3-4 hour round trip. We went about halfway then turned around and made our way back to the car. Hang on????? In that time we could have almost done the whole thing!!!!

So it really that good???............ Absolutely hey bro!!! (Say in NZ accent......try this one 5+1=sux bro)

Arrived late afternoon and only had 40 mins before daylight faded but walkway was great rouet to get some good views of coastline and to see seals on beach. good info on route and paths down to beach level at various points. Allow at least 1 hour if planning to do circuit.

we stayed in South bay for the weekend, we went for a walk up to the first look out, having a push chair i would not recommed pushing it up but it can be done. Amazing views we stayed up at the look out for about 45 mins, snow capped hills, with amazing blue coloured water and green hills. photograhers dream.

Loved the warm breeze as it was as cosy as being in a warm quilt in bed though outside. You soon peal off you clothing. An experience.

Clearly one of the best short walks in the area. The views from the top are amazing. Takes just under 2 hrs to do a return from peninsula bay to south bay and back. Would definitely recommend not to miss this.
