Farewell Spit is undoubtedly the main tourist attraction of the area. The Spit is the second longest sand spit in the world, at around 23 km and growing. Most of the Spit is a bird sanctuary, and access is available only through the local tourist operator www.farewellspit.com. The Spit tour buses pass by the end of Totara Avenue, and we can arrange pick-up there, saving you having to drive into Collingwood and leave your car there. The Farewell Spit Café, at the base of the Spit, offers views over the Spit. It is permitted to walk on the first 3 km of the Spit, and a nice walk is to walk out on one side and return on the other.
