Aramoana Beach
#4 of 33 Nature & Parks in Dunedin
Plenty of bird life to observe, if you are interested in nature worth a visit.
We took the beach opposite the first car park and walkd around the point and back along the swampy side on a very rugged windy day.

Natures Wonders Naturally

Natures Wonders Naturally is a privately family run nature reserve, carefully and sensitively tended keeping visitors and animals completely separate.
You can easily miss this out of the back of the Albatross centre car park but dont.
Penguin Place

This was mainly down to Caitlin’s determination and passion and sticking it out between the 2 hides and we were rewarded with a great view of nature at its best.
The best nature tour in New Zealand!

The Royal Albatross Centre
#8 of 33 Nature & Parks in Dunedin
Its wonderful that these birds can go somewhere protected to have their chicks and that people can have the chance to see nature at its best without disruption to the birds.
You can walk to viewing points near the car park and see several species of birds but taking a guided tour is definitely recommended.

Dunedin Chinese Garden
#9 of 33 Nature & Parks in Dunedin
... the ordinary especially as in the middle of the city by a busy road but we were wrong, this is an amazing place - just walking around the gardens you can feel yourself become more relaxed and at one with nature.
As a huge fan of Chinese gardens and parks I wanted to come here and you could easily spend a few hours here, the garden was very tranquil and large inside considering how small it looked from the outside.

Dunedin Beach
#10 of 33 Nature & Parks in Dunedin
If visiting Dunedin spend some time having a look around the Dunedin Beach's summer time great for a swim and family time on the golden sands or winter park up and watch the surfers out in freezing waters.
pretty good parking with some lovely looking eateries, ate fish and chips on a park bench looking at ocean, totally enjoyed a seal fishing - top entertainment there.

Karitane Beach
#14 of 33 Nature & Parks in Dunedin
Highly recommended place if you enjoy the beauty of nature, and some stunning coastal scenery, especially on a sunny day.
Sandfly Bay Track
#15 of 33 Nature & Parks in Dunedin
You can get good views over the bay from close to the car park but the beach itself is down steep sand dunes - great fun on the descent but an exhausting 15 minute climb back up.
The walkway from the car park leads to a lookout towards Sandfly bay.
