Cape Foulwind

A seal colony, lighthouse, dramatic views and a coastal walkway - Cape Foulwind truly has it all. You may also spot blue penguins and sooty shearwaters around here.

This headland was named by Captain Cook, after he encountered strong gales and winds here in the 1700s. It was Abel Tasman who was the first European to see the cape, however, and an old astrolabe (navigational instrument) erected in his honour can be seen overlooking Tauranga Bay.

The seal colony here is a breeding colony so there’s always something going on to observe at any time of the year - the females never leave and there are often playful pups basking and frolicking around the rocks. However the summer months are when the males arrive and spend time ashore (plus, it’s a lot warmer then!) without feeding, during mating season. It’s one of six breeding colonies on the West Coast and one of the most accessible in all of New Zealand.

A walkway stretches from Cape Foulwind south to Tauranga Bay, passing steep bluffs, sandy beach and green pastures. It takes about an hour and a half to complete. From Tauranga Bay it’s a short stroll to the seal colony viewing point. You’ll also find picnic facilities, toilets, and informational displays here.

You can choose to continue all the way to the Cape Foulwind lighthouse, in which case you may want to arrange transport at the other end (or commit to a 3 hour round trip). The tower is in much the same shape as when it was first built; the foundations for the original lighthouse (as well as the old keepers houses) are visible in front of the current one.

You will find Cape Foulwind and Tauranga Bay about 16 km from Westport - a fuss free drive from the town centre in your rental car. Simply follow Cape Foulwind Rd all the way to the coast.


Great value - thanks! Definitely will recommend you to my friends.
