Visit Pohatu Bay on the outercoast, panoramic views all the way down, working sheep farm and penguin colony. Get great photos of our friendly pet sheep which you can also feed by hand for a real kiwi experience. Then come with us as we monitor penguin nesting sites (only in season) and learn of the conservation work we do in the largest colony of Little penguins on mainland NZ.

Other native species are seen on the tour so great option for the keen birdwatcher (oyster catchers, cormorants, terns).
