Fantastic coastal views, the historic military sites of Godley Head, a visit to a little-known penguin colony, and a newly upgraded walking track combine for a superb circular walk. Expert researchers will meet you on the track above the white-flippered penguin colony in Harris Bay and show you some of the penguins, with their half to full-grown chicks. Then return to the start on DOC’s brand new loop track. Be prepared for a bit of a scramble down to the penguin colony and a short climb on the way back.

*Note that we will add a second departure at 12 o'clock with another guide if the 10:00 am walk fills up.
