The Storm Coast


Take a scenic drive along Wellington Harbour’s magnificent coastline that has claimed many shipwrecks and is dotted with quaint villages and quiet bays. From Wellington you will follow the harbour past Petone, where Wellington’s first settlers landed. Your coach will climb the rugged hills to reach Pencarrow Station situated at the entrance to the harbour. Stop to enjoy the Kiwi-style hospitality at the magnificently located Pencarrow Lodge. Here, you will be treated to a farm dog demonstration, a talk about the property itself plus morning or afternoon tea. Enjoy the scenery and make sure to bring a camera on this tour. Continue on to see Wellington’s hidden lakes, New Zealand’s oldest lighthouse and historic Maori sites.

Travel to the Zealandia: Karori Sanctuary Experience. A guide will lead you through this extraordinary conservation area and show you some of New Zealand’s rarest species. Locals often refer to Zealandia as their own “Jurassic Park” because it’s the only place in mainland New Zealand where you can see the famous “living fossil” - the tuatara, a descendant of reptiles that flourished over 200 million years ago. During your leisurely walk, be on the lookout for the giant weta - at three inches in length, it’s one of the biggest insects in the world! Then, you'll drive to the Otari Native Botanic Garden and Wilton's Bush Reserve, New Zealand's only public botanic garden dedicated solely to native plants. Another scenic drive takes you through the heart of the city and back to your ship.
