  • Despite being a windy afternoon we enjoyed the boardwalks that have been set up to optimize your views of the nobbies and wildlife spots in the area.

  • We had a walk on the trail and saw many wildlife there. It was near sunset and we had some great photos taken. We were waiting to see the penguins so it was a great time filler.

  • Beautiful scenery. Cold and strong wind. Its one of the best place to see the unimpeded view of ocean. Its a walk you can enjoy on wooded boardwalk looking at the ocean, waves, sky, flying birds, occasional seal, shrubs, man made penguin nests. It’s a power spot!
  • Do come during sunset where you can have an awesome view of the sea and setting sun, and spend about 30 minutes or so along the boardwalk. There are some interesting information about the place, where you can spend about 45 mins or so in there. Breeze is strong and do bring along a windbreaker even during summer. You can see lots of birds and wildlife. Encouraged to purchase ticket beforehand, online and can consider purchasing the multi attraction tickets should you be going to the penguin parade etc. Tip: plan your trip such that you arrive here before taking the small road to penguin parade which starts after sunset. That small less used road gives you another awesome scenic drive!
  • Great views, especially at sunset. The boardwalk is excellent and you can see a few penguins too. Can be crowded but not to the point of being uncomfortably so. A quick heads up that you can’t drive in any later than an hour before sunset but once you’re in you can stay as long as you want.
  • This is a beautiful place for walking around and exploring the volcanic rocks around the bay. It is a very picturesque location. If you ever visit during winter, prepare for the wind and the cold. It can get packed during the weekend, so be patient when trying to find parking. Drive slow around the area as there are a lot of goose families that walk around.
  • arrive here late, so just went to walking track outside which is beautiful. and this place would be so amazing for sunset but I have to go to penguin parade which start on sunset time. the view from inside also beautiful. there is a small mound that full of seagull which is cute
