Nature and conservation
Large numbers of New Zealand fur seals/kekeno haul out to rest on the rocky platforms around Katiki Point and Moeraki Peninsula. This is the main breeding area in North Otago.
A variety of sea and shore birds breed here.
Katiki Point is the most significant breeding site for yellow-eyed penguins/hoiho in North Otago.
Moeraki is 40 km south of Oamaru on SH1. Walks and campsites in the area are between Herbert to the north and Palmerston to the south.
Moeraki Boulders are signposted on SH1 approximately 1 km south of Hampden. There are two ways to access the boulders. Both access points are signposted.
