This A4 colour guidebook provides an explanation of the Red Rocks area on the South Coast of Wellington, one of the smallest scientific reserves in New Zealand. The key features are relatively accessible by foot via a 4WD track along the beautiful coastline, a short drive from Wellington City. The guidebook provides an interpretation of origin of the curious red-coloured rocks and associated features, along with a description of the geological investigations supporting the authors' interepretations.
