Dunedin is widely considered to be one of the best spots in the country for viewing wildlife.

From the Cruise ship terminal at Port Chalmers, we head up the hill with our first quick stop at the Port Chalmers lookout for a great view over the Port and out to Aramoana and Taiaroa Heads.

After a short stop to admire the view, we carry on to the Ecosanctuary to meet our guide for the 1 hr Highlights tour, where we may see Tuatara, Takahe, Otago Skinks, Kaka, Bellbirds and Tui.

From the Ecosanctuary, we have a scenic drive over the hill (with great harbour views), and then down through North Dunedin. After a quick drive up Baldwin Street (the worlds steepest street) we drive around the harbour and along the peninsula through Macandrew Bay and Portobello to the Royal Albatross Centre at Taiaroa Head to view the majestic Northern Royal Albatross up close.

Once we've finished with the Albatross, we head up the hill to Natures Wonders where we take a tour down to a private beach. From the purpose buit hides, you'll have the opportunity to view Little Blue Penguins, Yellow Eyed Penguins, and New Zealand Fur Seals!

We then start heading back to the city via the High Road over the Peninsula, with great views over the harbour, before ending the tour either in the central city (where you can explore before making your own way back to the ship), or we can drop you back to the Cruise Ship Terminal.
