Around 300 million years ago, things were pretty violent when a glacier in a wide fjord entered the sea at what is now Wynyard. Tidewater glaciers are dynamic: cracking and dumping, spurting and pulsing, pushing and shoving. And then, in a quieter environment, deposits of intriguing glacial sediments were made on the foreshore. These are now recognised as internationally important – and just waiting for us to explore. Level of difficulty: moderately easy.
