This is a lovely spot to amble along the beach at the base of the cliff trying to spot fossils - I didn't have a lot of luck, but did find a few shells. It is accessed through a new housing subdivision, but there's a...More

This is a short walk beside the river inlet, past a lot of lovely homes, to a great view. Very little traffic so it is a peaceful walk.

This was an interesting spot to explore. The tide was going out and it was easy to walk along the rocks to see all the different layers of fossils. Definitely worth checking out if in the area or doing the coastal drive.

Is just beautiful and well worth a visit. We stayed in Wynyard for over a week and took our dogs there regularly. There are little rock pools and the water is safe for swimming and it is so pretty.

This is a magical place but don't be fooled that it's all about the Bluff, rather than the rock formations, in and around, either side of the main beach. Magical photo shoots can be had from the loop walkway atop of the Bluff or from...More
