A very special wildlife adventure to a private penguin viewing location.

Take a comfortable tour onboard a coach and witness spectacular coastal views as you cross the Reid family farm to the breeding habitat of Yellow-eyed Penguins, Blue penguins, and New Zealand Fur Seals. Enjoy up close and personal encounters with nature through custom build viewing locations . This tour suits all ages, and a low level of fitness is required.

It is a real experience, owned by real people. Wildlife is living in natural environments the way nature intended it to be. The team at Natures Wonders don’t feed the wildlife, and the wildlife is not subjected to tagging, handling or any form of testing. This is as real as it gets when it comes to wildlife habitats.

The Yellow Eyed and Blue Penguins are a great example as they freely go about their lives on Penguin Beach. There is a common perception that penguins only go out to sea early in the morning and only return at dusk. This is not the case on Penguin Beach where the undisturbed penguins are seen throughout the day as they come and go and get on with their daily lives.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Perry, Tracey and Martin Reid made a choice: To restore the natural landscape in their corner of the world for future generations. The Reid family believe that if you want something to survive, to thrive, you need to give it a hand up and nothing deserves this protection more than New Zealand’s globally significant and unique flora and fauna. The Reids are true Kiwis, and they pour 100% into their role as guardians of the Otago headland and the thousands of animals that call it home
