Enjoy 'truly wonderful scenery' in New Zealand's Otago Peninsula
The stunning scenery and diverse wildlife it is home to means the Otago Peninsula is likely to be a highlight of any New Zealand adventure.
Though many people book a tailor made New Zealand holiday in search of adventure sports, with the two islands being home to some of the world's best bungee jumps and white-water rafting, they also boast stunning scenery and memorable animals.
And, according to a new travel report in the Daily Mail, nowhere quite shows off the country's natural credentials like the Otago Peninsula, with the 15-mile finger of land jutting out into the ocean just a short drive from the popular tourist town of Dunedin.
As well as the chance to see fur kiwis, lizards, seals, sealions, and yellow-eyed penguins, the peninsula is also home to the Royal Albatross Centre, giving visitors the chance to see the biggest winged seabird on the planet up-close and personal, the newspaper advises.
What's more, as well as the wildlife, this part of the country boasts some "truly spectacular natural scenery", the writer adds.
Meanwhile, anyone heading to Auckland may want an insider's view on the top places to go, with Anna Rosekerr's 'Pretentious Blog' advising that the city has some "great food, amazing beaches and lovely people".
