It is a very pleasant place to sit and have your coffee, with the soothing green of the trees of Albert Park beside you. But when I visited, I found it was closed.

The gannet colony in Muriwai is a great place to visit and to watch the elegance of these birds in the air. In strong winds, especially, this is an exhilarating experience.
