Dunedin is the wildlife capital of New Zealand and is home to albatrosses, sea lions, and some of the rarest species of penguins in the world - the native yellow-eyed penguins. Get up close and personal with these amazing animals, head to the Royal Albatross Centre – the world's only mainland Royal Albatross breeding colony in the world! Otago Peninsula is also another coastal wildlife paradise accessible from Dunedin. From here, drop by Larnach Castle, a 19th-century castle which houses a "Garden of International Significance" by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. For more alluring sights, hop on a train by Dunedin Railways to enjoy scenic journeys across the Taieri Gorge!
