Fyffe House

In a stunning seaside setting, Fyffe House is Kaikōura’s oldest surviving building and the last remnant of a pioneer whaling station established in 1842. Fyffe House lies about midway along the two-hour return walk that follows the shoreline between central Kaikōura and the Point Kean Seal Colony.
