This is aeroplane territory - albatross, gannets, gulls too penguins, addition their partners inward lolling, seals too bounding main lions. I expire into details almost them too where to consider them too what it takes to consider them inward their native haunts inward a previous post, In search of elusive New Zealand birds.

The Monarch is slowly on, slowly off, levelers too if yous don't consider an albatross flight your minute trip is free.
I definitely recommend taking the Monarch Wildlife Cruise too visiting The Royal Albatross Centre, whether or non yous hike upward the really long loma to the gun emplacement viewing area. Had a lovely slice of fish for tiffin inward the Cafe there, the displays are interesting too the gift store is a proficient one.

Ewe too lamb atop the overlook.
 One matter almost Penguin Place, brand the seek to expire upward the loma for the overlook too if you're lucky, a unopen come across amongst a few sheep too fur seals enjoying the warm Sun too soft grass. Odd because every bit a rule, fur seals prefer rocks for their Sun bathing, bounding main lions sand.
