Dunedin is a thriving city with a population of 132.000, set amidst a wild landscape edged by the sea. It is a place where the streets  hum vibrantly with color and culture and the beauty of nature is everywhere.

Otago Peninsula, stretching along the southern ege of the Otago Harbour is an easy drive frrom central Dunedin. A wonderfully scenic trip passing lush green pastures, small bays and inlets, sandy beaches, rugged hills and volcanic landforms takes us to the far end of the peninsula.

This is the home of a colony of Northern Royal Albatross. Down on the rocky shore lazy sea lions sleep   on land or are out in the water to catch their dinner. Yellow eyed penguins and blue penguins are hiding somewhere from us and we are not  patient enough to look out for them.
