Wildlife, including Hector's dolphins, yellow-eyed penguins, fur seals and sea lions, can be found at Curio and Porpoise bays. The area also contains the fossilised remains of an ancient forest and has an interesting history.
You can view the wildlife in the area. In the summer Hector's dolphins/papakanua play in the surf. Yellow-eyed penguins/hoiho nest in the area around Curio Bay/Waikaawa, and fur seals and sea lions regularly haul themselves out of the water along the coastline.
