Good whalewatching spot with free binoculars and a view across the harbour. June to August you will be able to see Southern Right Whales nearby. Between November and May you can see Blue Whales.
Beautiful coastline where you can do a seal walk to look down on a couple of seal colonies. There is a ‘petrified forest’ here which is actually a geological formation. Also check out the blowholes here and some natural rock pools. Check out the impressive Tarragal Limestone Caves.
Mount Richmond National Park
Take Stephens Rd off the Portland-Nelson Hwy and follow it after it turns into Mt Richmond Rd. A dormant volcano with great views and some nice short walks. Try the Ocean Views Walk for ocean views.
Discovery Bay Coastal Park
Eastern Ramparts Lookout and Cape Nelson Lighthouse provide great views. Lots of roos around and a Gannet colony at Point Danger.
