Location: Farewell Spit, Golden Bay
Farewell Spit is a bird sanctuary, wetland and nature reserve of international importance. Walking is permitted out to approximately three kilometres. This loop walk, out the inside and back the outside, takes about three hours. The Farewell Spit Visitor Centre and Cafe is also the beginning of several other magnificent coastal walks Westwards. Several days are needed to truly experience this area. For those who prefer a less energetic look, there are informative four wheel drive tours travelling right to the lighthouse, about thirty-five kilometres away at the tip. The Cafe has great food and a fantastic view out over the spit while you eat.
