What people are saying about Dunedin
We were too late to take the train to Tairei and went by bus instead which seemed a very long journey. The station was fairly isolated. Train trip back to Dunedin was very nice and scenery was beautiful. Unfortunately, the canteen on the train had virtually run out of decent food and it was quite expensive. Bus driver picked us up at station on our return and we had a short time in Dunedin city and then short tour of surrounds.
If you arrive by cruise ship at 9 am you will be driven by bus and then your the train back. Bathroom stops are only at the station, but there is bathroom on the train. City tour was adequate and we enjoyed the stop at the Octagon area. Would liked to have had more time at Dunedin station.
What a delight to see the penguins return from their day of fishing and to support this conservation effort. The "show" involves sitting outdoors for 90 minutes, so if it's cold out, dress warmly!
Really, really nice tour. The city tour covered a lot of ground and we really enjoyed that. Very good value for the money. The beginning time was not clear.
It was a little chilly so wrap up warm while you sit and wait for returning penguins which come ashore in groups just feet away from where you are sitting
