    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.

    Beautiful morning again and off to Christchurch for Christmas. We were told that there were a couple of really interesting stop offs on our way, so we had a plan to drive leisurely up the coast do the visits and arrive in Christchurch for dinner. The first place to stop was at Koekohe beach To see the famous Moeraki Bolders, wasn't quite sure what …

    On Monday afternoon Teresa did her Cadbury tour and I explored Dunedin's Victorian rail station and the harbour before returning to the Cadbury cafe for an amazing hot chocolate and a chocolate weetbix traybake slice. 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 …

    ... you - especially to Ngaio for her lovely picture which we will keep safe! We loved spending time with you and meeting you all (again!). So the road trip...we followed Highway 16 until we merged onto Highway 1, the Canterbury Highway. We were treated to partially or completely dry river beds, sprawling farm land, massive amounts of tractor dealerships (yes Jo Donaldson you would have been in heaven!) we even saw a Massey Ferguson show room! Far over to the right, sometimes hidden in ...

    The weather was much nicer today! Although it was not warm enough for shorts yet, the rain had stopped and there was some sun. We wanted to take advantage of this and do some outdoor activities in Dunedin.

    First we headed to Tunnel Beach, which is very appropriately named. It was a very steep track down to a beautiful cave-like cliff. The cliff held many seagulls resting on its grassy parts and water crashing through its open cave. Once we reached the level of the cliff, ...

    ... off at "Bushy Beach" another viewing place for yellow eyes penguins. As soon as we got down there within 5 minutes we had seen another one, after that we sat and waited for quite a while before we saw another, they tend to come out or go in to the water alone and seem to be a big wait in between them. Thankfully we had seen loads on our trip to the Catlins as today wasn't a very nice day, especially sat down on the beach waiting for penguins to pop up. It was cold, wet and very ...
