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.

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.
