La casa histórica de Olveston es una atracción imperdible para cualquier entusiasta del diseño que visite Dunedin. Admire la elegante decoración, el arte y el mobiliario de esta mansión de principios del siglo XX mientras sigue una guía a través de algunas de sus 35 habitaciones. El comentario informativo ofrece a los visitantes una apreciación más profunda de la arquitectura de estilo jacobeo.

Hice el tour tiki de los pingüinos azules, y me parece muy recomendable. Te recogen en Dunedin. De ahí trayecto de unos 45 por la península, con un par de paradas para foto. Llegada al centro con tiempo para tomar algo en la cafetería y poder ver los albatros desde el mismo. Lueho bajada a ver los pingüinos de hasta 1 hora. Hay que llevar ropa de abrigo, incluso aunque sea verano. Mucha gente lo hacía con su transporte propio, no hace falta llegar con el transporte del centro.

Kia ora and thanks for taking the time to write a review. It's fantastic that you were glad you did the Blue Penguins Pukekura tour and enjoyed it so much. As a kaitiaki/guardian of the headland we are primarily driven by the conservation of all the species that call Pukekura home, including a joint venture with the Pukekura Trust to allow for Blue Penguin viewing for visitors. Pukekura is a precious wildlife refuge and we work with the local Maori Korako Karetai Trust to host visitors and protect the Blue Penguins. We love to share this special place and unique wildlife experiences with our visitors. The Blue Penguins Pukekura guided tour offers an informative, knowledgeable hosted experience for visitors. This includes a briefing on the experience, explanation of and insights into the lives of Blue Penguins and exclusive viewing from on the wildlife reserve. The cost of the tour contributes to the stewardship and protection of the Little Blue Penguins. It enables the Otago Peninsula Trust with the Pukekura Trust and Korako Karetai Trust, which all manages Blue Penguins Pukekura to continue to offer penguin experiences to the public, to offer education programmes to children including revegetation, habitat and penguin monitoring and pest control. We very much value to contribution that visitors are able to make to this precious wildlife sanctuary by supporting the Blue Penguins Pukekura and Royal Albatross Centre tours and activities. Hope you come again to visit the Little Blue Penguins at Pukekura, and take the chance to access the Albatross Colony reserve and experience one of our informative and enjoyable guided tours.

Se trata de un centro donde cuidan su perpetuidad, hay multitud y supongo que les cuidan la puesta de huevos y su desarrollo.

Kia ora and thanks for taking the time to write a review. Thanks for supporting us by taking a tour. There is the chance for great viewing at the moment, with 4 of the albatross nests on view and adolescents back at the colony and socialising. Our team love sharing their knowledge and stories of the albatross and introducing visitors to the 'Royals of Taiaroa'. It is indeed a special and unique experience to be able to view these magnificent wild birds in their natural habitat and see the world’s only mainland breeding colony of Royal Albatross close up. A definite ‘must do’ of any visit to NZ - The Royal Albatross Centre – the Seabird Centre of the Wildlife Capital of New Zealand. Your tour fees definitely go to a good cause - for conservation and education programmes to help look after this amazing wildlife sanctuary. A portion of the tour fees also goes to Te Poāri a Pukekura co management group and supports the group's role as guardians of the headland. Our Otago Peninsula Trust, which owns the Royal Albatross Centre is NZ's first charitable conservation trust, set up in 1967 to 'preserve and enhance Otago Peninsula'. As well as supporting conservation, pest control, habitat restoration and visitor facilities we also offer special prices and days for families and locals to enable greater access and appreciation to the colony. We also run education programmes for school children at a minimal cost for the pupils; in 2019 we hosted over 1000 students. The Trust also donates over $11,000 of free tickets annually to help schools, charities and good causes fundraise. The Royal Albatross Centre itself, with it's comprehensive historical and educational displays, videos, toilets, cafe, gift shop is free to access for everyone. This is only made possible by the Trust's activities. As you will appreciate, it costs a significant amount to run a centre like this 364 days a year. We very much value all the contributions people make so that the Trust is able to offer this access and facilities to everyone year round. The cost of providing water and toilets to guests is about $100,000 per annum as water and sewage have to be trucked in and out of the headland. Thank you so much for your support of our Trust. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday! All the best Sophie, Marketing Manager, Otago Peninsula Trust Enterprises PRESERVING AND ENHANCING OTAGO PENINSULA SINCE 1967

Me encantó este lugar. No conocía lo que era un albatross y es un ave impresionante. El lugar es perfecto y en la bajada para la playa podes ver focas y lobos marinos (no podes bajar mucho, pero se ven perfectos). Dejo foto del albatross que mide 1 metro de cuerpo y 3 con las alas desplegadas

Creo que es algo único y debe de visitarse. Además se nota que están haciendo una gran labor en cuidar las colonias de pingüinos azules y protegerlos. Se ven de cerca y es muy especial ver estas aves tan singulares. Llevar abrigos porque pega mucho viento. Lindo para cualquier edad

La salvaje y casi indómita península de Otago parece, definitivamente, ser un mundo aparte. Dejando atrás la escocesa e industrial Dunedin, basta conducir unas decenas de kilómetros por una sinuosa carretera que bordea la costa ( a veces peligrosamente cerca de ella) para meternos de lleno en un territorio semisalvaje donde parece que quien gobierna es el reino animal. Mas bien diría que los humanos, siempre cómodos y apegados a los lugares que les proporcionan cobijo y confort, no se atreven a pasar de un límite. En este caso, y tras las últimas casas de la preciosa bahía de Dunedin, una especie de sucedáneo de fiordo sin altas montañas pero con una envidiable entrada de mar, el paisaje deja de ser un calmo y tranquilo paraje y se convierte en un ventoso peñasco donde las aves, las focas y los pingüinos han recuperado o que siempre fue suyo. Un paisaje accidentado es la carta de presentación de este extremo de la península, con su increíble y superpoblada colonia de albatros reales que se pasea a sus anchas por los numerosos miradores y entra y sale del fuerte que se levantó para prevenir una posible invasión rusa a finales del XIX. Es una experiencia extraña la de poder caminar entre los nidos, con las aves tan cerca de nosotros que podríamos tocarlas si se dejaran. Acantilados que quitan el hipo, un faro de postal y sobre todo un centro de interpretación que nos informa e instruye sobre las costumbres de los animales de la zona. Si tenemos oportunidad, que no la tuvimos, al atardecer hay que mirar hacia abajo, muy por debajo del aparcamiento, donde se encuentra la playa de Pilots Beach, donde tocan tierra los pingüinos azules que regresan de su jornada de pesca. La península de Otago es un lugar diferente, inhóspito y desafiante, extraño pero al mismo tiempo atrayente. Me pregunto lo que pensarán las aves cuando nos miran tan fijamente a los ojos....

Kia ora and thank you for your beautifully written review about Otago Peninsula - it is a wonderful place! I would just like to point out to anyone reading your great description of your visit, that the nests that the writer refers to are seagull nests, who nest around the headland - we have N's only breeding colony of red-billed guls not in decline - they are as endangered as the yellow-eyed penguins!. Access to to Royal Albatross Colony, the worlds only mainland breeding colony of Royal Albatross is strictly by permit to our obseravtory. The only people allowed to walk amongt albatross nests are the rangers, volunteers and occasional VIPs. We are very lucky that we are able to access the nature reserve and share it with our visitors. The Royal Albatross Centre offers visitors the only chance to easily access a close up experience of an albatross breeding colony. The activity is different every day, all year around as albatross court, breed and raise their chicks. We have over 50 returned albatross currently and are excited about our hopes for their breeding success this season, last year 26 chicks were successfully raised and fledged, the second equal record. The albatross guided tour offers an informative, knowledgeable hosted experience for the limited number of visitors that are permitted by the Department of Conservation to access the colony. This includes a video, explanation of and insights into the lives of albatross, exclusive viewing from on the wildlife reserve with special access to the world’s only mainland Royal Albatross breeding colony. The cost of the tour contributes to the stewardship of the Albatross. It enables the Otago Peninsula Trust, which manages the Royal Albatross Centre to continue to offer albatross experiences to the public, to offer education programmes to children, free interactive displays contributing to understanding of the peninsula wildlife and ecosystem for visitors and to continue in its role "To preserve and enhance the Otago Peninsula". A portion of the tour fees goes to the Department of Conservation and supports the department's role as wildlife guardians and for their management and care of the albatross at the colony. As a kaitiaki of the headland we are primarily driven by the conservation of all the species that call Pukekura home, including the Royal Albatross at the world's only mainland albatross breeding colony. We love to share this special place and unique wildlife experiences with our visitors. We very much value to contribution that visitors are able to make to this precious wildlife sanctuary by supporting the Royal Albatross Centre's tours and activities. We cannot guarantee viewing during this early breeding period; there are rare and occasional times that visitors may not see Albatross. We endeavour to provide visitors to the headland with an understanding of the chance of seeing albatross and to provide a wonderful and engaging experience on our guided tours. As well as understanding more about albatross there is an amazing array of other wildlife the visitor may see - and the views of the harbour, ocean and landscape from the viewing areas at the reserve are breathtaking. Hope you come again to visit the Royal Albatross, and take the chance to see what the Albatross are up to next time. All the best Sophie, Marketing Manager, Otago Peninsula Trust Enterprises PRESERVING AND ENHANCING OTAGO PENINSULA SINCE 1967
