... eventually find the badly-marked park and head in. We stop for a very late lunch by the river, but can’t see mention of a disc golf course anywhere – we explore for half an hour, then decide that there’s nothing here, so we play Frisbee for a while before heading back to the car and driving back to town, via the Signal Hill Lookout – which we can’t find either! It appears to be a day of near-misses – ...

Awesome wildlife!

A travel blog entry by wanderlizzy


... suddenly about 400 yards out to sea, the water shimmers and appears to boil. The surface of the sea is moving towards us, its a weird sight then, right at the waters edge, 80 plus little penguins arrive! They all come toddling up the beach ( we are all standing on a raised platform with gentle lighting under us, where some of their burrows are) It is incredible. Utterly unbelievable. I cannot believe its real, but this happens evey night of the year ...

Sand Dunes and a Yellow Eyed Penguin

A travel blog entry by thebartons99


... into dense flax. We're not sure how far back his nest was - nests have been found up to a kilometre inland from the sea.

We stayed a while longer but didn't see any more. We had a long climb back to the car and decided to head out before it got too dark!

[On the way out, we stumbled across a penguin nest box - with a baby inside. Presumably his parents were still out at sea. We left quickly.]
