  • These amazing rocks are well worth stopping for. incredible natural carving of the rock on the Western coastline. Blow holes, surge pool and information is readily available.  more »
  • We did the Punakaiki – Pororari Loop and it was really pleasant. The elevation gain is pretty mild and you go trough some really cool scenery and forest. Highly recomended.  more »
