Great little town. The highlight is to see the Yellow Eyes and Blue penguins. The blue penguins require a reservation and unfortunately no cameras are allowed. You can see dozens of them climb out of the water. The yellow eyed penguins can only be viewed from far away, so bring binoculars or a telephoto camera. They are fairly rare and you'll be luck to see even one. Still a very cool sight to behold. We also went on the Elm Tours which picked us up from the Top10. We got to see and photograph plenty of blue penguins and yellow eyes penguins.
