Lower Kaikōura Peninsula Walkway

Lower Kaikōura Peninsula Walkway

To explore the extraordinary rock platform seen from the cliffs of the Kaikōura Peninsula Walkway, continue on the north side of the Kaikōura Peninsula to the end of the road. From here you can walk onto the rock platform (Lower Kaikōura Peninsula Walkway), or access the track up onto the top of the cliff. The rock platform was pushed up by the 2016 earthquake and is now largely bleached white.

If you follow the base of the cliff, you’ll reach a protected seabird breeding area – the number of gulls is astonishing and the edge is marked by raucous sentries. Continue on to the main seal colony. You can also do this as a loop with the north end of the Peninsula Walkway.
