Milburn Whale Fossils and Lookout detour is just outside town. You will get great views of Lake Waihola and kids can imagine the world where whales and dolphins swam. The lime quarries are where unearthed dinosaur bones were found. It is estimated the bones are over 24 million years old. The whale fossils were found 170 m above current sea levels. A small exhibition displays the pictorial history of the lime and phosphate working in the area, as well as displays of 24-34-million-year-old whale and dolphin fossils.
