Curio and Porpoise Bays: We saw fur seals, hectors dolphins, yellow eyed penguins and a petrified tree forest, all for free. Fantastic given that you usually have to pay to see penguins and dolphins elsewhere. Great motorcamp on the cliff above the bays.

South of South Island, Southern Coastal Drive: Great drive, lots of lookouts, walks, views, great sight seeing, nice to see the real New Zealand, e.g. towns not commercialised for tourists. Starts at Owaka.
