Another fantastic place to visit in The Catlins, Curio Bay has so much to see before you even walk down the steps on to the beach you get a very good view of the petrified forest laid out on the rocks below you. As you walk around the bay the waves are crashing against the rocks in the background and keep your eyes open as you might be lucky enought to spot a yellow-eyed penguin and when i was there last November we saw about six of them going about their business and they're so wonderful to watch but please remember to give them plenty of space. Also on the right hand side of the bay is a deep gully which the waves rush up and makes the giant sea kelp dance about and when you manage to get this close to the kelp it's amazing just how large it is and it looks like you could even walk across it! I've been lucky enough to visit Curio Bay three times and it never fails to be spectacular.
