Lucked out at this hostel as there was only me and one other lady in our 4 share. It was great for 2 but might have been small with more. Slept great. Kitchen small too but had some nice picnic tables outside to eat. Very convenient to Botannical Gradens behind...which were VERY nice and short walk to bus station...maybe 10 minutes.

We had to rush off to Oamaru to get to the hostel before reception closed as we hadn't booked. It was quite an easy drive and we got …

Thursday: After another great nights sleep, we got up and got on with another day outside cleaning the courtyard, and giving the floors a good scrub again. After all that we have a fridge a good clean out as they had planned to use this over the Christmas period ...

... at times; when we got to the castle they wanted us to pay $60 each to see the castle and gardens, so we turned around and didn't manage to see anything. On looking into it, the castle is a 19th century Scottish baronial style mansion house, so I'm sure we didn't miss much. The main attraction on the peninsula is the Royal Albatross Centre which is right at the tip, and a long windy (bendy) drive along the shore, at times there is only the white line between you and a drop into the ...

... the rocks, jump onto their feet and run up the hill before the next wave smashes them into the rocks. They then walk up the hill, groom themselves for 5 minutes and continue into the burrow area for the night. It was really good and beats any aquarium hands down. No photos as cameras aren't allowed. After the penguins we head to a well known fish and chip shop. Used to be called Te Bros (duno what it's called now) Blayne's dinner for ...
