The rides on the amphibious vehicles is pretty cool, and on a sunny days the views are amazing . However this place comes across as a bunch or red neck farmers trying to capitalize on Dunedin's peninsula wildlife . It seems to be quite a rushed tour, and what is also surprising was the all male guide team No female... More

We went to this on the advise of a local who takes all their out of town guests. Well worth a visit. A shining example of a private land owner doing nature preservation and Eco tourism right. Both the animals and visitor are well served. We hit up close to baby seals, saw an elephant seal, and yellow eyed penguins... More

The Argo vehicles they use to get you to your destination are quite fun to ride. They can be rough and muddy. The place gives you a jacket to wear to keep the mud off your clothes. Depending on the weather conditions, the going can be quite a jolt as the Argos traverse the bumpy paths. Views from the hill... More

I'm sure this is probably a lovely place. We came here after the Albatross Centre was closed (not open until 11:30). The guy who served my friend was so rude. She asked if she could use the toilet but he said not until you buy something. What? Unbelieveable. She asked could he hurry (she was busting) with her order but... More

10 years after the first visitor at Natures Wonders Naturally, I've had a drink of Diet Coke, on way home to Portobello, I bought Three free items (AA Maps North+South Island, Tourist Times.)

Whilst visiting Dunedin in New Zealand we visited the Tourist Information Centre and saw that trips were advertised for Peninsula Wildlife Tours. Wanting to see the wildlife of the area we ventured on the trip and were not disappointed. We were taken on a short tour of the area, with photo shot stops on the way to Natures Wonders. The...

it was an intersting visit, especialy seeing lots of seals from very close. They used a special 8 x 8 vehicle to bring us close to the seals. Don't expect to see to many pinguins (we have seen one from a long distance).

Popped up here for breakfast and coffee as Albatross place not open when we arrived. Coffee was good but toasted sandwich very average - had used the heel ends of bread loaf - have never come across this anywhere before, filling wasn't flash either

This was an excellent and exhilarating excursion. Numerous fur seals were observed as close as possible; penguins and chicks from a distant hidden observation tunnel. The Argo ride and access is strenuous -our wheelchair traveler wisely skipped. The walk to see the penguins is very steep and rocky - even for physically fit.

A group of cruise passengers booked this tour through the tourist office at Dunedin. We were promptly picked up and set off on a very scenic tour. Eventually arrived at Taiaroa Head where we were told that we were going on a nature "drive." thought this was an extra which we would have to pay for, delighted to find out... More
