Curio Bay Petrified Forest - The fossilized trees you’ll see at this World Heritage Site were alive around 170m years ago when New Zealand was part of the Gondwana super continent. It’s thought massive sheet floods of volcanic debris destroyed the forest and in the millions of years since, deeply sediment buried sediment has turned the wood to rock. The forest is best viewed at low tide.

Tumu Toko Curio Scape - The Gateway Experience is a world-class interactive centre especially designed to share the unique stories of this amazing place on the edge of time. There is a cafe/restaurant on site, as well as a campground. For more information
