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.

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.

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.
