After morning pickup from your Dunedin hotel or cruise port, start your tour with a short drive to a panoramic lookout over Dunedin, and then to Baldwin Street—the world’s steepest residential street.
Next, view Victorian and Edwardian architecture at heritage buildings such as Dunedin Railway Station and the University of Otago, and check out the Octagon—Dunedin’s central plaza—and colorful street art.
From here, head to the Otago Peninsula, soaking in the bucolic scenery on the way to the Gothic Revival–style Larnach Castle. Stroll through the gardens, and have the option to tour the castle (own expense) and purchase lunch at the café.
Continue to Taiaroa Head and see wildlife such as New Zealand fur seals and royal albatross. Learn about yellow-eyed penguins during a 90-minute tour at Penguin Place, then walk along St. Clair Beach and watch surfers in the chilly Pacific Ocean.
Your full-day tour ends with drop-off at your cruise ship or hotel in Dunedin.
