This is the location of one of New Zealand's oldest lighthouses, built 1869. The area is a wildlife sanctuary for Yellow-eyed Penguins, fur seals, elephant seals and many sea birds. There is a spectacular 20 minute walk from the car park to the lighthouse. Nearby is a viewing hide to observe Yellow-eyed Penguins - best seen in the later afternoon as they come in from the sea.
