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.
_We***52There is a free viewing platform for fur sea lions, the habitat is under the stage, and it takes an hour to walk from the lighthouse to the direction of the trail, but only 15 minutes from the sea lion habitat is very worth seeing. The naive guys are playing and chasing, which is very interesting.
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.
