Where do we go?

If you’re looking for scenery, adventure, nature and wildlife, DUNEDIN AND OTAGO are where you want to be!

When we were designing our tours, we realised just how many options there are for tourists to explore in this part of New Zealand. We thought that it would be helpful to have a bit more information on each of the stops that we make, including each of the attractions, locations, or activities that our tours include.

Check out below, where we have a brief overview and some photos, as well as links to anything that might help you plan where you would like to visit (hopefully with us!)

Dunedin

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunedin

Dunedin is the second largest city in the South Island, and the largest south of Christchurch. With a population of around 130,000, Dunedin was once the largest city in New Zealand, and contains considerable history as a result.

We’ll show you the city from top to bottom (quite literally!). From lookouts such as Signal Hill and Rotary Park, down to the harbourside villages of Macandrew Bay and Portobello, as well as historical architecture such as Dunedin Railway Station (reputedly New Zealands most photographed building), First Church and St Pauls Cathedral. And the reason many tourists come to our city - the wildlife! We are so incredibly fortunate to have the only Albatross colony on an inhabited mainland anywhere in the world, as well as a harbour and coastline that is inhabited by NZ Fur Seals, Hookers Sea Lions, Yellow Eyed Penguins, Little Blue Penguins and frequently has visits from Southern Right Whales, Humpback Whales and Orca, and Dusky Dolphins.

Otago

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otago

One of the original areas of settlement in New Zealand, Otago has a long and varied history. After experiencing rapid growth due primarily to the Otago Gold Rush, a lot of the wealth and power in the country was centred in the region.

Otago has long been a favourite tourist destination in New Zealand, with some of the most incredible scenery to be seen anywhere in the world. Since the 1980’s, Otago has become the go to destination for adventure tourism, mainly centered around the Queenstown Lakes and Central Otago area, with the coastal parts of the region famous for it’s variety of bird and marine life, much of it native to New Zealand.
