Discover the unique flora and fauna of New Zealand with this guided tour of the Royal Albatross Centre in Dunedin. Located on the secluded Otago Peninsula on Eastern Dundein, known as the wildlife capital of New Zealand, the Royal Albatross Centre is a must-visit for outdoorsy persons as well as nature lovers! Meet up with your tour guide at the location at least 15 minutes prior to the time you selected during booking, and once the group has been assembled, the tour will immediately begin. Enjoy a short film abouot the story of the albatross, one of the largest seabird species in the world, and Taiaroa Head, a coastal headland overlooking the stunning Otago Harbour. You'll then get to witness the majestic royal albatrosses in action at the viewing observatory, all while your English-speaking guide discusses their history and day-to-day management. Take awesome photos before the tour ends after an hour, but remember not to use any flash to avoid disturbing the wildlife!
