The Yellow Eyed Penguins are the rarest penguin species, but good to spot from the lookout. Of course you need some luck that they come ashore, and the time you are there. Generally they come ashore when night falls. Perhaps useful are binoculars. We ourselves have gone later in the evening, we did not know they came ashore here, and have then been lucky enough to see parents feed the chick. All this from the vantage point.
The penguins come ashore as night falls. And only when it is quiet, too much noise can scare them, resulting in them not come ashore. With all its consequences. To watch them run on the beach binoculars are recommended. Or just wait and be patient. After the Yellow Eyed Penguins come ashore its possible to see the Blue Penguins come ashore in the nearby area.
