Rare yellow eyed penguin (hide) is nearby Roaring Bay. The steep track to Roaring Bay is 10 -15 minutes one way. This pretty little cove next to iconic Nugget Point has a perfectly placed hide to spot the very rare yellow eyed penguins. It’s a short stroll to the hide and the best time is as they return from sea in the evening just after sunset. The name refers to the numerous seals inhabiting the area. The seal colony is unique as elephant seals, fur seals and Hooker seals share the same colony. The walk around the cove perimeter is approximately 30 minutes on a flat, formed track. It is definitely worth the hike to Roaring Bay. Carry binoculars as seals are sometimes hard to spot as their fur blends into the rocks making them hard to identify.
