Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Worth stopping for the photo of the wreck as much for the background of mountains and clouds but little else. A few minutes detour and a quick hop out of the car is all that’s required

Honestly, the wreck sits on a mudflat which is a bit treacherous to walk on, and there are some haphazardly placed stones out to the wreck and not much room for many people, so better to drive here, take a quick look and move on.

It's a wreck and suitable for a photo. You get muddy feet if you want to get to it. The rest of the bay is very beautiful and the wreck is in danger of becoming an eye-sore rather than something of interest.

This thing needs to go into a large hole, what an eye sore, Talleys are known to bully people and a plaque with information about this ugly wreck is all we need.

I was amazed at how small this vessel was for the type of work that it did, and how brave were the people who worked on it. It is humbling to get a glimpse into the past to understand how people made their living many years ago, and appreciate how good we have life in New Zealand now.

I love coming here specially for sunset it looks very nice and colourful. Lowtide you can walk to the wrack. I wouldn’t climb on it as it’s unsafe. And also you can have a nice walk along to the beach.

The fact that it was built in Glasgow , our home city, made it interesting. Otherwise it’s just a rusting hulk in an otherwise pretty bay.

Its kind of puzzling why they leave this old shipwreck here to rot. You can see corrosion has eaten its way into the ship over the years.

This is also a residential area & this small ship is close to the coastal shore.

It's an unusual sight but also a very puzzling thing. Perhaps the best thing about this is that one do not need to dive into the ocean to see a real shipwreck.

The Janie Sheddon is a very interesting old wreck not too far off shore. Don't let the photos on here mislead you though - it's now classed as too dangerous to climb on. Make sure you go at low tide too otherwise the sand around it is essentially thick mud.

Wish there was a little more info around about the ships origins/story as I had to Google why it ended up where it is now.

This is and excellent area to walk and jog. The area is just a beautiful coastal scenic area. A must to do either at sunrise or sunset.
