If going by campervan, don't underestimate the distances, eat at The Beach House in Riverton, do the Rob Valley track, have windshield insurance, expect changing weather.

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.

A secret garden hidden from view of the passing traffic. So call in and sit back and enjoy the views over the pond watching the wildlife.
