Point of difference

Dunedin Airport is the entryway into the stunning South Island. Located 30km south of Dunedin City, the
airport is surrounded by the rugged Maungatua’s creating a breath-taking backdrop for your arrival or departure
from Dunedin.

We are a very scenic 140km drive through Dunedin to / from Oamaru. Moeraki fishing village, lighthouse and seal colony, and the Moeraki Boulders are there to be discovered on route. Macraes Gold Mine (New Zealand's largest) is a short diversion inland from Palmerston.

If you can allow yourselves some additional time, take in one or both of the amazing scenic routes:- 1. Via Port Chalmers to Waitati (with the option of a stop in at the Orokonui Ecosanctuary), or 2. Via the Coast Road and Karitane.

Whichever route you choose, the scenery and local history is sure to delight and enthral.
