There are many great walks around Moeraki, such as the easy walk to Katiki Point Lighthouse. This can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour but will give you the opportunity to see some of our beautiful and unique wildlife. If you are lucky you might get to see both the Yellow-eyed and the Blue Penguins, as well as Fur Seals and the native birds that call Moeraki home. Just remember not to touch or feed them but do take plenty of photos from a distance.
You can also walk up to the Moeraki Lookout from the Moeraki Tavern. This is about a 10 minute walk, 20 minutes return. Here you can see all the way to Kakanui and to Shag Point. Just make sure you take something warm if it’s a windy day.
