sometimes you need to get back to nature…

Dunedin is renowned as a city and region with amazing opportunities to view wildlife up close in it’s natural environment. The Otago Peninsula is home to Fur Seals and Sea lions, Blue Penguins and Yellow-Eyed Penguins, and famously the only mainland Albatross colony in the world! Additionally the Orokonui Ecosanctuary is a very short drive from Port Chalmers and makes a wonderful few hours of peace and beauty.

With multitudes of beaches and bush only minutes from the city, the scenery of Dunedin is something that we are very lucky to be able to share with our visitors.


Come and explore the award-winning Visitor Centre and native New Zealand forest. Discover the home of some of the world’s most fascinating and rare wildlife.

Walk independently or with a guide.

Penguin Place is the world’s first entirely tourism-funded conservation programme.

This conservation project is entirely funded by guided tours of the reserve. The funding we receive provides habitat restoration, predator control, a research programme and on-site rehabilitation care for penguins that are sick, starving or wounded.
