One thing we didn't know that there were only 2 places to eat here and one of those was our resort - so we went there! We had a window seat and watched the sun set over the Tasman Sea, it was lovely and the food was pretty good too! We then went back to our balcony and watched the stars and listen to the squawking of the penguins (unfortunately they only come in a certain times and it was ...
