尹泡喵The Royal Albatross Center is located at the tip of the Otago Peninsula. It is a place similar to a visitor center. There is an information desk and a restaurant, but there are no albatross. The albatross are all under the mountain and there are not many. They rest there. They didn't fly, there were black swans below, but New Zealand red-billed gulls flew all over the sky, and they weren't afraid of people. The scenery there is pretty good, you can take a look.
梦中的纸马Baldwin Street is located in Dunedin on the South Island of New Zealand. It is named after the Otago MP and the founder of the newspaper William Baldwin. This street is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the steepest street in the world. The total length is 350 meters, and the steepest slope is about 1:2.86 (19° or 35%), that is, every 2.86 meters walked, the height increases by 1 meter. Yuanwang doesn't feel steep, and it's a bit hard to walk, especially when I see cars climbing uphill, as an old driver, I sweat for them. The lower part of this street is an asphalt road, and the upper part is a cement road, because the hot weather in summer will cause the asphalt to flow out, which is not conducive to people and vehicles. In fact, there are still some streets in New Zealand as steep as Baldwin Street.
pxy0705The Octagonal Plaza in Dunedin is the central square here. As the name suggests, this square is an octagonal square. On each corner, there is a very famous local building. It can be said that this is the undisputed center of Dunedin. It is definitely a must-go place to visit here.
莺语花儿The famous Moraki boulder is scattered along the 40-kilometer-long coast south of Oamaru, a fruit that, according to Maori legend, rolled over a thousand years ago when the Araiteuru sank. Later scientists concluded that the boulders formed 65 million years ago.
tiramisu1130Lanark Castle, New Zealand, the only castle in New Zealand. Located in Dunedin, the Gothic Revival architecture stands breezely on the top of the hill.

Founded in 1863, Dunedin Botanic Garden is New Zealand's oldest botanical garden. From formally laid out lower gardens to native forest in the hills, this 28-hectare park contains more than 6,800 plant species. The Dunedin Botanical Gardens have had various species of rhododendrons since ancient times. The beautiful Edwardian Winter Garden Greenhouse – containing tropical, subtropical plants, cacti, and water reservoirs – is the hallmark of a lower garden. For a hands-on experience, Herb Garden provides a variety of pleasant aromas and textures, as well as information on traditional uses of various herbs. A beautiful garden of roses and camellias completes the lower garden, which borders beautifully with the world's largest rock garden as water flows along the banks of Lindsay Creek. Crossing these tributaries, well-prepared trails lead to native plant sections, which include endangered plants, alpine and wetland plants, as well as native forest species. What's interesting about this area is woven hemp. Adjacent to the native plant section of the upper garden is the Geographic Collection with plants from Africa, America, Asia and Australia. The Dunedin Botanic Garden experience is enhanced by scenic hillside views, manicured lawns, birdhouses, shops and cafes. The park is located in North Dunedin, just two kilometers from the Octagon. Regular bus services run from the city center to the north end via the Botanical Gardens.

We only took the Wildlife Tour so didn't book the tour, but spent an hour exploring the information center and museum. . . it was SENSATIONAL and very informative.. it was so worth it to see the penguins kneeling in front of us. Try hard to get there but be prepared for a serious flu - bring a very warm and windproof hat, gloves, scarf and coat.
We spent an hour just wandering around and reading everything about the history of the Albatross and how the Colonies were discovered, founded and protected over the years.
We will definitely be back next year and doing the tour.
They also have a nice gift and gift shop as well as a lovely cafe.

The castle was very rich with history if Dunedin. The castle us also very well maintained for how old it was and the gardens were alot better than I anticipated. If you are going here, please pay the extra to go through the castle. It was better than expected, but beware of the high road going to the castle as it is kind of narrow. A smaller vehicle is probably for the best. #wintergetaway
I went to Dunedin New Zealand and was able to see the beautiful sky. when you see the three photos, you will be able to see the wonder of the nature which always shows hopes. The street lamp in the sunset sky, the rainbow over the tree, and lastly, the hopes from the cloud!
I think they are all beautiful!
Always hope for the best to come !
Dunedin is the most beautifull city I‘ve ever seen! I wish I could live here!!! The university is just breathtaking and the chocolate factory just delicious 😍 Do not miss out on this if you‘re spending your time in New Zealand!
Dunedin Railway Station is New Zealand's most beautiful station. This building, designed according to the Flemish Renaissance style, was built by basalt and Oamaru White Stone. It has been magnificent for more than 100 years and has a crown-like brilliance.
Into the station, there are no buoys, no bustling waiting people, only a few rows of nostalgic trains are quietly there, as if to tell their history.
In New Zealand, the main purpose of the train is to carry goods, and the passengers are all tourists who are not in a hurry. As one of the world-famous sightseeing trains, you can see the alluvial Canterbury plains and the towering southern Alps. The Otila tunnel made of hard rock, the magnificent Tasman Sea, but we have limited time, failed to do so, or really want to take the train and feel the beautiful scenery along the way.
The Moeraki Boulders were conjectured as a "gift" given to the Earth by aliens. They did not go to the scene and could not imagine that this was a gift from nature.
On the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, more than 50 huge round stones are scattered on the beach. The largest diameter is more than 2 meters, the smallest is more than half a meter, the weight is several tons, and there are cracks in the corners. Still hollow.
The scientist explained that the calcium and carbonate around the charged particles have crystallized over 4 million years, but the shape of this shape, after years of scouring by the waves and wind and rain can form such a round and lovely shape, I would rather believe in Maori. The legend of man: "A few hundred years ago, the canoe Arede Oulu was overturned when New Zealand was about to land. Many of the gourds on the ship were washed ashore and formed the boulders we saw today."
Attractions, tourists and tourists wave after wave, but I would rather stay away from the crowd and see the warm side of the round stone.
Located on the southeast corner of New Zealand's South Island, the Cape Nugate Point Lighthouse is not close to Queenstown and Dunedin, but attracts countless visitors and is considered to be New Zealand's most photographed lighthouse.
On history It was built in 1869, time is not too long; on architectural style, it is not special. But the real reason why it is fascinating is the light!
Because the sea is the Pacific Ocean, the view is wide and you can see Antarctica. Whether it is sunrise or sunset, sunny and cloudy, the light of God gives this lighthouse without hesitation.
Under the varied blue sky, the endless ocean and the towering cliffs, the sound of the waves, the screams of the gannets, can not help but indulge in it, the title of the most beautiful lighthouse is definitely expected.
