Driving out along the peninsula was a highlight. Scenery was stunning (where isn’t in NZ). We saw lots of birds along the way, and seal colonies. Stand out was the free look-out point (by the albatross centre- which you have to pay for), to see the royal albatross birds flying along the coastline. You'll see where it is (look for lots of bird poo on the ground)- watch out, as my partner did get pooed on.
