Tour continues with an exhilarating four-wheel drive journey to Red Rocks on the dramatic Seal Coast at the south of the city. You'll drive across a live active fault line, over rock beachfront and around headlands to visit a captivating colony of fur seals, sprawled over the rust-coloured rocks that give the destination its name. The views here are exceptional - you'll see the Tasman Sea meet the Pacific Ocean, the tumultuous waters of Cook Strait separating the North and South Islands, and the distant mountain ranges of the South.
You will have time to relax and enjoy a delicious bistro lunch in one of Wellington's cafe society venues with brilliant panoramic views over the harbour capital.
After lunch your guide will take you along to an invigorating bush walk in New Zealand's only botanic garden dedicated solely to native plants. On the fringes of the city, yet seeming a world away, you will venture through safe native bush trails and plant collections, including several 400-year old trees. This botanic garden is a haven for native birds where you may see the Tui, Kereru, Silver Eye, Kingfisher, Grey Warbler, Bell Birds and Morepork amongst the giants of the forest, our guide will entertain you with fascinating stories of New Zealand bush lore.
