Kenthurst Lodge would be a very good choice for those who want to watch the yellow eyed penguins and visit the Nugget Point. Heather gave us very useful and practical advice, and kindly lent us warm clothes. Without her help we couldn't have stayed in the cold hide long enough to watch the very rare penguin. The B&B itself was also comfortable and great.
