Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Fantastic tour with Chris. Very knowledgeable and so much enthusiasm.
    The house itself was magnificent and such a treasure to view.
    If you love history, you need to visit.

    I was very keen to see the Northern Cemetry after I'd heard about the devastating loss of so many historic roses a few years ago, but the Otago Heritage Rose Group have done an unbelievably great job restoring the history and atmosphere in this gem, high in the hills overlooking the city. December was a wonderful time to see the old roses wind their way around the historic monuments to our pioneering past. Many old families, like the Larnachs and Thomas Bracken (of National anthem fame) rest here amongst the ancient trees and beautiful headstones.. and the lovely information sheets, help one to find their way around- I could have stayed all day.

    The Dunedin High and District Court was built from 1895 to 1902.

    It located virtually across the road from the Dunedin Train Staion.

    It was constructed of gothic style and has a symetrical facade and has been well maintained.

    Very heavy rain when we visited. Albatross centre was open so could look at the exhibition for free. Exhibition was good. Also has a cafe and shop. Many sea birds seen but no albatross. There are limited paths to walk around and the car park can fill up. Enjoyed the drive from Dunedin. Birds enjoyed sitting on the cars.

    These are the remains of lime kilns built in 1874, now looked after by the Peninsula Trust. You have to park on the side of the road, but there's not that much traffic, and it's a 5-10 minute walk down across the paddock. Really worth looking at close up, but could do with better interpretation that tells a fuller story of the history of these kilns. Recommended for a stop if you're out on the peninsula.

    Short stop on the Lagoon walk. You can make out where the gun was, but the tagging spoils it, although there is plenty of parking. Nice view up and down the beaches.
