This coastal 4WD track from the Te Kopahou Visitor Center in Owhiro Bay passes a small group of historic baches built in the early 1900s. Pari-whero means red rocks, referring to an area of (you guessed it) red rocks you'll come across in the last quarter. The track then leads further on to Sinclair Head, where you can see seals in winter.

Seals! They love to hang out here in winter.
