Stop at the visitors centre on Arhturs Pass, there is an interesting exhibition about the area and you get the chance to watch the Kea's or Alpine Parrot. They are in the wild but are regular visitors to the picnic area. So keep a keen eye on your food and do not feed the birds OR let them steal anything - they are very quick!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
