Too bad that the walk is 3 hours return. I wouldn’t mind walking but it was raining and windy. But seeing all the photos make me wanna go again on summer. Definitely a bad idea to go to the island on winter or raining as...More

This walk on the north island is really beautiful. Parking is just this side of the airstrip. It's worth stopping in at Big Lagoon to see if there're any interesting water birds. We walked along the cliff tops and had gorgeous views of the Tasman...More

Absolutely loved this beach walk. Amazing rock formations and caves - definitely worth the walk! We had seen snakes on the Laballidierre Peninsula walk the day before, but thankfully did not see any on this walk.
