This area boasts some of the best wildlife and some amazing rock formations all in a relatively small area. Tumu Toka translates to "hard wood", which is a reference to the ancient fossil forest with imprints of ferns and fallen trees around 180 million years old seen at low tide. Nearby nest the endangered Hoiho yellow eyed penguins. Also accessed from this area is Porpoise Bay where in summer you might see the rare hectors dolphins if you are lucky.
Fabulous rental service. Easiest by far! Book online. Well priced. I actually got the car I wanted and not an 'upgrade' that I had to pay for. No additional costs when you get to the desk after a long flight. Staff were friendly and helpful. Drop off was super easy. I would definitely rent again and highly recommend!Annie Charlie
