We had yet another stay at this Luxury four bedroom Bungalow which has all the facilities required and fantastic views which are spectacular. The night time views show the milky way and the area is breathtaking. A 5 Star accommodation which we would recommend to any one, unbeatable value for money. Faultless.

Drove down to Slope Point the most southern point of the South Island, it is very remote and we had to travel for 16km on an unsealed road which was very stoney and dusty the car is filthy but no point cleaning it until we move on. The campsite we stayed at is a farm with over 2000 Lambs a thousand sheeo and 600 calves a great spot and the owners are really accomadating. We drove to Slope Point and boy was it windy but sunny at last ! We the drove to ...
... with protecting them. For example, there are limitations on usage of the bay but there is a surf school there. There are stricter rules regarding the penguins. It helps that Curio Bay doesn't have a beach, the shore is all rocks. No surprise, the penguins were our reason for stopping there.
The yellow-eyed penguins are very shy. They nest in the bushes. They are only viewable in the early morning or evening, when they go out to ...
