Akaroa Off The Beaten Path: 36 reviews and 87 photos
This is a lovely piece of land close to the beach. It is not only a perfect picnic spot with tables and benches, and toilets as well, but also for bird watching.
While we had our sandwiches there we were entertained by lots of fantails, and saw a huge NZ woodpigeon and a couple of redpolls, plus some seagulls and introduced species like chaffinches.
