pxy0705The Melaleuca Rock on the South Island of New Zealand is a very peculiar natural landscape. The rocks on the seaside are naturally weathered into layers like a giant Melaleuca. It is very magical. This geological landscape is called columnar shoes. It is a natural miracle formed by the coast, and it is definitely worth seeing.

d36***08Melaleuca Rock, a simple and intuitive name, a unique attraction on the West Coast. The scenery is spectacular. Pieces of huge rocks shaped like thousand-layer pancakes bulge into the sea from the cliffs, or they may rise to the sky, or connect into one piece, with magnificent momentum. Stop and watch ~ the sea breeze, the waves, and the sound of birds; move to the scene ~ supernatural craftsmanship, colorful, impressed by the beauty and power of nature. Comprehensive facilities. The trails, viewing platforms, and signs in the scenic area are very scientific and comprehensive. After entering the scenic spot, follow the trail and make a clockwise circle to see the whole scenic spot completely without taking any wronged roads; standing on the viewing platform, the most spectacular scenery is right in front of your eyes; follow the signs of the signs , It can not only increase knowledge, but also take evocative photos. The transportation is convenient. Starting from Greymouth, the car takes 45 minutes to the north along the highway and arrives at the scenic gate on the side of the highway. Parking is also very convenient. Many tourists regard her as the first stop on a counterclockwise tour around the South Island.

dwj-Punakaiki i-site is just across from the entrance of Melaleuca Rock Geopark. The tourist information point has a parking lot. You can also park on both sides of the road. There is a coffee shop and public toilets nearby. I usually visit it before and after entering the geopark. I won’t take pictures of tourist information spots. The photo is from the park opposite i-site.

Helendj9811Pancake Rocks has gone through 30 million years of carving and crafting, creating an ingenious landscape of Pancake Rocks. Pancake Rock Park is located in the small town of Punakaiki. It is a part of Paparoa National Park and a famous scenic spot on the west coast of the South Island. Pancake rock, also called melaleuca rock, is a multi-layered stratum composed of hard limestone and softer sandstone, formed by long-term erosion of soft sandstone by wind and rain. Inside the pancake rock, there are many vertical channels and horizontal tunnels formed by erosion. When the tide is high, sea water flows in through the horizontal tunnels and rushes out from the vertical pores to form a spectacular fountain water column, so it is also called spray Water hole. If it happens by chance, the water spray will generate a rainbow landscape under the sunshine, which is very beautiful. This is a geological wonder formed 30 million years ago, and it has long stood at the tip of the Tasman Sea. Arrive at the Pancake Rock Scenic Area and begin to walk through a small piece of primitive forest along the passage. After crossing the castor and bushes on the coast, you suddenly saw the magnificent pancake rocks and the Tasman Sea. The turbulent waves and turbulent waves of the Tasman Sea have shocked our eyes, taking the children to appreciate the wonders of nature together~ Tourists who want to see the water spray cave must be opposite the entrance of the attraction when the tide is high The information center can inquire about the day's rising and falling tide times. For more information, for example, there are some very good hiking routes around, you can also consult the tourist information center~

燃烧生命的小胖妞In Melbourne, there is such a coastal road, is a self-driving travel enthusiasts paradise. This is Ocean Road. Ocean Road is actually built to commemorate the first world war soldiers, in the early days of the establishment of a lot of active veterans involved, so it is very significant. The 300-kilometer ocean road, which has been built, has also attracted many people to see the waves lapping the sand.

137***66In fact, I think Pancake Rock is expensive as the number one attraction on the West Bank, but I don’t recommend it. The reason is that it’s just a pile of rocks, and there are no other attractions nearby. If you come here all the way, it may cost For a day or two, then just look at this stone, which is not worth it. Also, it is often raining in the West Bank, and the mood of playing will soon deteriorate, and the mood will also be soaked. Finally, there are really many black mosquitoes in the West Bank, which is very annoying. This attraction is just in the park where you are going to see Pancake Rock. You will definitely be there, but it’s just a stone...
