Pancake rocks Location Punakaiki
Date 960224
I'm not certain that this odd limestone formation in the Paparoa National Park deserves to be a major tourist pull but there is no charge and the Chimney Pot blowhole is worth it when the tide is right.

Nikau palm tree Location Punakaiki
Date 960224
The nikau is the only native palm and one of the few which can survive this far south.
