Kaikoura Free Visitor Attractions
Kaikoura in Canterbury, New Zealand is a small coastal seaside resort town and a very popular destination for both local and international travellers. Kaikoura is well know for its crayfish and marine life and famous for whale watching and swimming with the dolphins. Kaikoura is situated midway between Christchurch and Picton on the east coast of the South Island and is close to the rugged mountain range running the length of New Zealand.
Oahu Point is 20km north of Kaikoura, and you cannot miss it if you are driving south from Picton. You'll start seeing seals swimming near the coast as you get close to Oahu, where some rocks offer a perfect shelter for fur seals and their puppies.
Observe seals and seabirds, explore historic pā and whaling sites and enjoy clifftop views of the sea and mountains. Suitable for families, the whole walkway takes three hours but you can also explore a range of shorter tracks.
The track makes it way alongside the creek and around the bass of the train bridge. The time stated for the walk on the notice board is 10 minutes. The walk around the rock face, remind me of the walk around the karangahake gorge in the north island. Watch out for seals they swim up the creek to the falls.
