Cape Palliser Lighthouse & Putangirua Pinnacles, NZ North Island Roadtrip Vlog Day 2

This post may contain affiliate links that I earn a small commission from at no cost to you. Please see my disclosure page for information.

Day 2 of our 42-day road trip around the North Island of New Zealand started off from our accommodation in Greytown, Greyfriars Motel. We headed down to the town of Martinborough, and then made our way to Lake Ferry, out to Onoke Spit, and then across to Cape Palliser Lighthouse.

On the way back, we hiked up to the Putangirua Pinnacles where some scenes from Lord of the Rings were filmed. This is a ruggedly beautiful part of New Zealand and much to our surprise, we found some adorable seals and their pups chilling on the rocks by the road.

This article is all our own experience. Everything was paid for by us and no part of it was free or subsidised. That said, many of the links in this post are affiliate links, which means that I get a small commission if you click it and make a booking or purchase. I hope that you’ll use these links anytime you need to book a place to stay or activity! These small commissions help me to keep travelling so I can write and film more travel guides for you. I would never recommend anything I don’t or would not personally use!

Home is Australia, and while they don’t spend all their time travelling the world, Matt and his wife like to take the time to really explore and get to know a place, even if that means spending a lot longer there than normal tourists might.
