The Otago Peninsula holidays

The Otago Peninsula is a small area of hilly country approximately 20km long and 9km at its widest point, stretching east of Dunedin into the Pacific Ocean. The offshore waters are rich in wildlife, and sightings of little blue penguins, dolphins, southern right whales, Hooker’s sea lions, fur seals, and the endangered yellow-eyed penguin have all been recorded here. The peninsula is also home to the only mainland breeding colony of northern royal albatross in the world, and an information centre and observatory have been established at Taiaroa Head to view these magnificent birds. New Zealand’s only castle, Larnach Castle, is located in the north of the peninsula near the hamlet of Pukehiki.
