Yellow-Eyed Penguin Colony
There are large hides and good trails to the yellow-eyed penguin colony at Bushy Beach, where the penguins come ashore in late afternoon to feed their young. Two hours before dark is the best time to see them. Despite their Maori name, hoiho (noisy shouter), they’re extremely shy; if they see or hear you they’ll head back into the water. Graves Trail, a 2.
