Part of the Leigh Coastal Walks at 9am Saturday April 26th, 2014
Join Tony and Jenny Enderby on this coastal walk. Birdlife includes pipits, kingfishers, herons, pied shags, gulls, welcome swallows, ducks, fantails and oystercatchers.
At the end of Goat Island beach the walk is over boulders and rocky platforms before emerging onto a beautiful pink beach. On the way learn about the Niagara Wall and a little of the history of this ship that sunk off here during WWII.
At Pink Beach there is a small waterfall where you can enjoy a drink and snack. As the tide will be low take a look at the rock pools of Echinoderm Reef with the Enderbys. The marine life is varied and interesting and includes nudibranchs, molluscs, barnacles, crabs, fishes, seaweeds and much more.
To find out more about the marine life, visit the Goat Island Marine Discovery Centre. Each participant will receive a voucher “two for one” entry to the centre. Register for the walk now at www.leighbythesea.co.nz
