St Kilda Beach - where we stayed Easter Friday

beautiful views

Trotters Gorge - near the Moeraki Boulders area on the way to Dunedin

Narrow, windy roads through rocky land covered in the yellow blossoms of the gorse (whin) trees...sound like Northern Irleand to you? It was lovely... Check out the spider we saw who is missing a few legs!

Port Chalmers - near Dunedin

Known as a container port where frozen goods were first shipped opening up a new market for NZ farmers across to Asia and the world. It appeared to have a lot of logs and wood chippings being shipped out as we were there. We camped along the peninsula after scavanging the hilltops late that night for a place to stay. The next morning we awoke to a peaceful flat water view reflecting the harbour's sleepy beauty.

Dunedin - University of Otago town

Lively town with a large Scottish influence. Fantastic railway station which still looked as grand as it did in its day. We stayed a night along St Kilda's Beach - again beautiful seaside views as we awoke after a night of boy racers and "hoons" drag racing on Good Friday!

Portobello - near Dunedin, on the other side of the bay

Another beautiful drive - very scenic with twisty roads along the water's edge. (White knuckle driving for the passenger at times!) We stayed in a little campsite here which we enjoyed mainy because of the electric heater we could use and kettle for a warm cuppa tea!
