The South Island of New Zealand beckons off the Wellington Harbor headlands

The South Island of New Zealand beckons off the Wellington Harbor headlands.

You can see it from here, but it’s a (sometimes rough) 3 hour ferry ride from the center of Wellington through the Cook Strait.

We’ll have to make that ride sometime just to see it up close.

This protected nesting site hosts penguin burrows over its hillside expanse. The penguins come ashore each evening in sets of 3-6 and climb the beach and hillside to reach their burrows.

The Royal Albatross Centre (also host to the only mainland nesting site for the Royal Albatross) hosts tours each evening to their penguin observation platform to witness this daily event.
