Built into the side of a steep hill it is oddly laid out. Our room was right at the back. Its advantage was it was very quiet, disadvantage was the lack of parking space which was reduced even further by two trailers of logs and assorted rubbish. Maneuvering even a medium sized car was very difficult and mine argued with the pebble dashed wall. The other problem was no working Wifi. As usual for NZ the rooms were clean and tidy.

The Otago Peninsula is a natural wonderland. You want to see penguins? Fur seals? Sea Lions? Spoonbills? How about the largest flying bird? The only known mainland Albatross nesting ground is on the tip of this very peninsula! And guess what?! You can so see them!!! So we did!
Being a foggy rainy day, we didn't ...
... roads had a sheer drop on one side with no barrier, and it was thick fog. By the time we got to the castle we couldn't even see it so we turned round and headed further up the peninsula. The road at sea level also has no barrier. its about a 10 foot drop into the rocky sea. I am sure some cars must have gone in at some time but there were no tyre marks on the road and no wreckage in the sea so perhaps not.
The weather was no better so we just carried onto the end of the ...
... Tropical Section, where both temperature and humidity were maintained to suit the butterfly's which fly freely around, and on, you. We moved away from Dunedin to visit the Blue Penguin and Albatross breeding grounds on the Otago Peninsula. We only had time to see the Royal Albatross Colony, as the Blue Penguin "Parade" does not start till they come ashore at dusk, which ...
