NUGGET POINT & It's NUGGETS!
Located on a high knob jutting out into the Ocean is New Zealand's oldest Lighthouse, built in 1869.
The area is a wildlife sanctuary for Yellow-eyed Penguins, fur seals, elephant seals and many sea birds. We saw lots of Seals here. There is a viewing hide for the Penguins, the best time to see them is dusk.
The Nuggets are all the very tiny islands / rocks that are in the Ocean, somebody thought of a clever name!
It is only a 20min walk from the car park to the lighthouse.
A very scenic area, and I would call it a MUST VISIT!
LOCATED ON THE SOUTHERN SCENIC ROUTE
