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.

Despite the waking up to have a stretch or the seat belt buckles digging into hips, we slept well and didn't wake up till about 8am. We had to be off the campsite at 10am, and needed to be get going back up to Dunedin by then anyway, so I went off to have a nice hot shower, in a proper bathroom.., on a campsite. There was only one shower and quite a few people turned up to stay on the site ...
... tour through the main house was impressive and the steep stairway to the turret commanded some even more impressive views. We finished our visit with a very nice devonshire tea in the main ballroom.
On returning to the city we headed to the Otago Museum to have a look at the Discovery World Tropical Forest, Dunedin's HOTTEST attraction. It housed over 500 butterflies. The temperature and humidity reminded us of Brisbane as the camera lens steamed up and dozens ...
