  • Its a lovely short walk up to the lighthouse, with lovely coastline, sadly we did not see seals... better luck next time  more »
  • Great spot to visit, got to see a sealion in the flesh and watch a crazy aussie being chased by it. Strongly recomend to stay atleast 10m from them as they are very fast.  more »
  • It is a lovely drive to this lighthouse and when you arrive the scenery is wonderful. We even saw a sea lion on the beach.  more »

  • Beautiful place to have been there once. It is for me the most southern point ever and far from home. Always nice to take a picture here with the South Pole signs and the distance home.
  • From the main road, follow the signs that take you via about 4km of dirt track to a small car park. the dirt track is good enough for any vehicle. There is a toilet in the car park. From the side of the car park you can look down over the beach area and when we were there a huge Sea Lion was crashed out on the sand. Short walk up to the light house for some scenic vies of the beaches.
  • Nice easy walk but very windy still enjoy it. Say some seals too
  • Lovely Scenic Lighthouse, with spectacular all round views. Not to be missed if you are driving in New Zealand.
  • What a great place, sealing rock pools ,petrified tree trunks and big seas
