    The only reason this attraction has been marked "very good" instead of "excellent" is because of the renovations taking place that are temporarily hampering activity and display within. Still well worth a visit as these "Happy Hens" go all around the world.

    This is a small shop loaded with all things from Scotland and great souvenirs. We bought many items there and enjoyed our experience. The lady who worked there was very helpful in finding the correct plaid we needed for my husband’s family. We were happy that we came to this shop and was pleasantly surprised at all of the items they had available. So glad we popped in!

    I love books and I love this place. I do a yearly trip to Dunedin just to spend a few hours perusing the stock in the store (which is not available online = clever move). While I have particular interests I always leave with titles I never knew I wanted. What more do you need?

    Frankly, we probably made the journey to Dunedin as much to revisit this gem as anything else. Bill is soooo knowledgeable and helpful. We understand why their stock is not online, and regret that in a way, but then we’d miss out on the fun of discovering long sought titles.

    I stumbled upon Rata when walking through the mall and from the outside it looked like another boutique NZ inspired jewelry store with unaffordable high prices but after looking a bit closer I was incredibly impressed. There were so many beautiful, unique pieces that were actually cheaper than most chain stores. I fell in love with a beautiful feather pendant and the owner was more than obliging for me to buy the pendant as I had a favourite chain at home I wanted to put it on. I will totally be going back whenever I'm in town to check out their latest designs :) Thank you guys!

    Shopped Avoca Face Musk and Eye Gel. For the same price, we enjoyed service here, specially by a young clerk girl, named Tina, who grows up in New Zealand and speaks both Chinese and English very well to give us details introduction and quite clear comparison between products.

    This is a great space.
    We had been to Peter Gregory’s gallery in Waikouaiti and were pleased to see more of his work.
    The quality of the ceramics was very high with well priced pieces.
    We always like to buy a locally made ceramic piece as our ‘souvenir ‘ when travelling abroad.

    If your on a NZ cruise your ship will most likely berth at Port Chalmers for Dunedin. Before rejoining the ship take a few minutes to visit this gallery. It's only five minutes walk from the wharf entrance. Cross the street & turn left at the next corner. The Flying Whale is just a few doors up the road. A gallery displaying works by a local artist. Very whimsical offerings. Cards, prints, originals & many transferred to clothing & things like tote bags. Not your usual run of the mill souvenirs. I loved it & bought a print. Would have purchased more but it's all I have room to display at home.

    Fantastic Local Gemstone & Semi-Precious Bracelets, Necklaces & Earrings, as well as large pieces of Gemstones. All Jewellery is very reasonably priced. I have also had some other items posted to me after I returned home. Excellent Service & prompt dispatch of goods.

    I wanted to resist but it is a mini wonderland if you love your second hand books. Loved the way that book cover wallpaper cocoon you in a temple to books.

    Great shop with lots of local and NZ products for sale. You can take as long as you wish to browse without anyone pressuring you to purchase. A great variety of gifts to be found.
