at the little beach at the end of the road below the Albatross colony you can walk on the sea wall and be just an arms length from seals and sea lions though i'd recommend 5 m as a good distance , as they are a bit aggressive, first you see one , then another lifts its head and you... More

We visited on a Friday afternoon and throughly enjoyed our ride out with Perry and Martin. They were both very knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife that is to be found on their land. We saw cormorants, adorable baby fur seals, 2 types of penguins and a far-off albatross. The feeling of being part of nature was just stunning. Amazing... More

1265 Harington Point Road, Taitaroa Head, Otago Peninsula 64 3 4781150 Although a little hairier than expected, this expedition proved our favorite. The bus trip with its swerves and loops made us all gasp a little but that was nothing to donning maximally ugly hooded rain gear and clambering into 4-wheel-drive ATVs with great strapping drivers who were grinning from...

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).
