    The albatross centre is amazing. Before going I knew nothing about these amazing birds but I've left being completely obsessed! The tour was great, lots of information was given about albatross and their conservation in a really enjoyable way. We were lucky enough to see 7 albatross chicks and an adult coming in to land. We got much closer than we expected in the hide and it was really magical to see these birds in their natural habitat.

    The locals sneered at our enthusiasm to visit Baldwin Street, stating that there are many steep streets in Dunedin. But there is something significant about walking up THE steepest street in the WORLD. Although it lost its title in 2019 to a challenger in North Wales, it regained its status from the Guinness Book of Records in April 2020. Steep it is and definitely worth a visit! We were the only 2 people there at the time and enjoyed meandering to the top where there is a mural, water drinking fountain and bench (in desperate need of repainting).

    The octagon is a very teal marker for anyone in Dunedin. Plenty of shopping, bars and cafes spin off this marker so I’m sure at some point you’ll come across this area in town.

    We just saw the outside of this building from across the gardens at Anzac Square in Dunedin. It was built in 1902 and makes a nice reflection of the train station. Flowers were blooming which added to the square’s beauty. It’s still an active court house so I’d advise you to be on best behavior to avoid seeing the inside.

    Fantastic quick stop with a very helpful gentleman showing us around the train. One very happy child.

    This is one of the many sites/sights (located on the octagon) that can be seen during a self guided (heritage) walk, of Dunedin (city), maps can be sourced from the i-site info centre (for 50cents).

    The building (facade) it self is quite impressive, built is the late 19th century, adds the the beauty of the area.

    If you are lucky enough to be enjoying the sights of Dunedin's stunning peninsula, then this is a must look at Macandrew Bay. Top local art with framing and associated services. Enjoy the range and then catch a coffee or a meal nearby, or an ice-cream at the local store. Soak in the local flavour before a swim in the harbour (but not in winter)
