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.
Our first trip to New Zealand with our one year old baby. Was little bit scare. Used Ezi car rental for car hire. Wonderful experience. Communication was quick and awesome. Customer care responded to all queries efficiently. Got the exact same car what was promised during booking. Car was sparkling clean and smooth to drive. 100% recommended.mandeep singh
