Lonely Planet review for Day Walks
There are a number of short tramps, ranging from half an hour to seven hours; the majority are easily accessed from Halfmoon Bay. Pick up Day Walks ($2) from DOC Rakiura National Park Visitor Centre. The walk to Observation Rock (30 minutes return) has good views over Paterson Inlet. Continue past the old stone house at Harrold Bay to Acker’s Point Lighthouse (three hours return), for good views of Foveaux Strait and the chance to see blue penguins and a colony of titi.
