It's just one of those places in the world that you must experience. The wind, the fauna, the rocks, the secluded beaches and the sun or clouds just seem so different from the rest of the world.

My husband and I travelled to Dunedin by motorbike. Whilst there we did day trips out to the peninsula and the surrounding areas. Dunedin is such a lovely place to explore. I would definitely recommend getting out of the city limits and enjoy the countryside and beaches and the seals

What a wonderful, tranquil place. Nice beach and great wild life. A great place to take a deep breath and appreciate nature. Stop at the cafe at 1908 for a lovely lunch too.

Drive from Dunedin city center to Royal Albatross center is great. We stopped at places to take pictures. Great view of light house. After Natures Wondering tour, we visited Lanarch Castle.

I would recommend taking a tour, unless you love driving as it would definitely take a whole day to drive

We spent 3 nights at Harington Point Motel, which was ideal for exploring the peninsula.The Albatross centre was within walking distance and well worth a visit. The local beaches are beautiful and remote , ideal for those who enjoy walking . We saw sea lions and fur seals. Sandfly Bay and Victory Beach are well worth visiting.

We took at tour to this amazing area while staying in Dunedin. Don't miss this opportunity to get off of the beaten track and see many species of birds, including albatross and yellow eye penguin.

Beautiful peninsula with easy access to penguins, sea lions, fur seals and albatross. The albatross centre viewing tower is well worth it.

In good weather the journey is a joy. Try both the coast road and the High cliff road. Each offer great views. The peninsula is great even if you don't visit the attractions.
