Private Tour of the Best Lookouts and Short Walks on Both Coasts packed into Half a Day.


For those who have limited time this tour gives you a snapshot of the beautiful advantage points along the coast where the locals like to spend much of their leisure time. There will be options for you to do short walks at the advantage points. This can be fast paced (fitting in many walks) or relaxed, enjoying the view and strolling over to a cafe for morning tea with a view. The bonus is during the months of June through to October hundreds of whales pass this coastline and there is a high chance of sighting whales from all these advantage points.
