Otago Peninsula is a great place to go wandering and offers surfers, wildlife types, scenic junkies and pretty well an other outdoorsy types a great place to explore. With added bonus of being close to Dunedin.

“Great outdoor experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Been tramping at the tracks such as Harbour cone, Lovers Leap, The Chasm, Sandfly bay and others. SOme of the tracks pass thru private land so they are close in lambing season.

Visit the Albratross penguins when the sun is down :)

“Beautiful in Rain or Shine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

I ended up on two tours to the Otago Peninsula: a 2 hour tour of Dunedin area which included part of the Otago Peninsula and the Elm Wildlife Tour which really went into and around secluded parts of the peninsula. It is truly beautiful. Be sure to get to both side of the peninsula and, if you can, toward the end where there are ponds with incredible birds. Going with a naturalist (like through Elm Wildlife) is really worthwhile.

“A must do!”

Definitely take a tour of the peninsula. The scenery is just beautiful, and the animals are just amazing. You must see the blue penguins and yellow eyed penguins.
