A place of incredible natural beauty made up of a series of ancient volcanoes, Banks Peninsula is famous for its astounding views, glorious beaches, and pretty townships.
There is an impressive network of walking tracks with unrivaled views, including the 35-kilometer Banks Peninsula Track, open for tramping from October to April. Alternatively, cycling and horse-trekking trails span the peninsula. Guests can also take to the seas by sailing or fishing for a day on the water.

The peninsula is home to fur seals, spotted shag seabirds, two types of penguin, and Hector's dolphins. To be sure to spot some local fauna, guests can visit the marine reserve at Pohaty / Flea Bay, which offers guided tours to see the largest little penguin colony on the mainland, with over 2000 penguins including the unique yellow-eyed species.
