After a filling and energy-inducing breakfast, today’s walk takes you firstly along a black sand beach and past cliffs which are embedded with 8,000 year old fossils. After a couple of hours, turn off the beach and walk inland into the bush where you may want to stop for your picnic lunch at Circle Shelter, an ancient Maori campsite.Then walk over open farmland where there are amazing views of the snow-capped peaks of the Kaikoura Peninsula to the north and the Banks Peninsular to the south. Take a break at the picturesque "Rest and Reflect" bench at the top of the hill, before making your way to the Whare cottage, where you'll be spending the night.
