Cape Foulwind Walkway, Westport

4.7
#1 of 14 in Things to do in Westport
Despite its odious name, Cape Foulwind Walkway remains an ideal place for close encounters with kekeno--the New Zealand's fur seals. Whales are also slowly making a comeback in the area, after a whaling station on the cape diminished their numbers in the past. Access the colony via a walkway, which crosses undulating farmland and continues northward along the scenic coastal bluffs to a lighthouse. You will find lots of information panels along the way, describing historic sea voyages, explorers, timbermills, and quarries. To plan Westport vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • A beautiful walkway with a seal colony at the end. Quite neet place to visit since it is a typical west coast scenery  more »
  • Great track, wonderful views and things to see along the way. There was a coffee cart when we arrived , but by the time we walked to the lighthouse and back it had gone sadly .  more »
