North Island bay 'is ideal'

Article content

15 January 2010

Nature lovers should visit Palliser Bay in New Zealand for a chance to glimpse some of the country's most beautiful wildlife.

This is the suggestion of Suite 101 contributor, Kate Russell, who stated that the North Island attraction is an "ideal holiday destination" for viewing local flora and fauna.

She remarked: "A fur seal colony breeds at Cape Palliser and this is the only location in the North Island where breeding is well established."

Ms Russell went on to claim that the animals are so widespread in the region that they can often be found trudging through the grass by roadsides.

Those not interested in New Zealand creatures can still enjoy the sights, she added, including the Putangirua Pinnacles - a set of rock formations of which some are believed to be more than 1,000 years old.

The country's South Island was recently highlighted for its sunny weather conditions by fourcorners.co.nz, with the Nelson region noted for receiving the most sunshine over the last 12 months.
