Tip on : Kaikoura - 6 years ago
Well known for whale watching. I had a three or four day stay here on tour one time, stayed at a B&B type lodge run by an aussie bloke, cant for the life of me remember the name of the place, was painted kind of apricot tones. Anyway, comfortable place, good selection of books... Started reading "Tales of Power" there, great fireplace too btw. The settlement itself has a couple of cool tourism based shops and you will find good coffee here somewhere. There is a big hill to go stand on and look out to sea. Legend has it there is a large amount of UFO activity here... I never saw anything, but then, I never have.
