The Orokonui Story What began as a mere dream to restore an entire forest ecosystem to its pre-human state, is now a reality.

In less than 10 years, the Orokonui Ecosanctuary has become the only place on mainland South Island of New Zealand where native birds, animals and insects can live a life safe from predators. They are free to fly, feed, mate and nest wherever they wish, exactly as they would in the wild.

Visitor Centre • Wildlife • Café • Walks

Since the $2.2 million, 8.7km pest-proof fence was erected around our 307 hectares of protected habitat in 2007, pests have been almost entirely eradicated. This has allowed us to reintroduce a number of endangered species and there are encouraging signs they are adapting well to their new home. In fact, it is becoming increasingly common for native birds to find their own way to the ecosanctuary and take up residence. To support the Ecosanctuary, a million dollar eco-friendly visitor and Otago Daily Times education centre has been built into the hillside above Blueskin Bay. Here, visitors can learn about the Ecosanctuary and the native species it contains, take a guided tour through the Ecosanctuary, purchase gifts and educational material from the souvenir shop, or simply have a coffee and enjoy the view. All of the funds generated from visitors contribute to the ongoing conservation work at Orokonui Ecosanctuary.

9.30am-4.30pm Orokonui Ecosanctuary is open toOpen visitors Daily from 9.30am to 4.30pm daily except Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Entry into our Visitor and Education Centre and Pa of Harakeke is free Rd, of charge. Top Blueskin Waitati Ph 03 482 1755

We offer guided tours twice daily, at 11am and 1.30pm. Available However, group sizes are kept small so bookings are recommended. Transport Our walking tracks are open for self-guided walkers allowing our visitors to explore at their own pace.

How to get to Orokonui Just 20 minutes drive from Dunedin City.

Welcome to DUNEDIN - Edinburgh of the South Dunedin, is the second largest city in the South Island and yet is a world away from any traffic jam. This thriving city – the oldest in New Zealand - offers all you would expect from any city in the world, perhaps even more. It is renowned for its proximity to incredible wildlife, vibrant cafes, restaurants and shops as well as high quality cultural experiences. The largest industry in Dunedin is tertiary education, with students of Otago University and Otago Polytechnic making up almost 20% of the population of Dunedin. These students add to the diversity and vibrancy of the city especially after dark. Dunedin is rich in wealthy Victorian architecture and history. The railway station building is regarded as one of the most important, architecturally, in the world and Dunedin itself is often regarded to be one of the best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere. A city tour ending at The Otago Settlers Museum will uncover fascinating tales of those who settled in Dunedin. From the early Maori, Scottish pioneers and Chinese gold miners the tales allow you to immerse yourself in history of this city. Once you have enjoyed everything on offer in the city you will discover that Dunedin is also a gateway. The Otago Peninsula only a brief drive from the city centre, is home to a colony of the world’s rarest penguins, the only mainland breeding colony of the royal albatross, rare New Zealand sea lions and the magnificent authentic Larnach Castle (the grand home of an early politician). From the historic railway station Dunedin is also a gateway to climb aboard the Taieri Gorge Railway to Central Otago or let the road take you south to discover the Southern Scenic Route and the wild Catlins seemingly untainted by the modern world. Regardless of where you stay or what you do in the southern city the lasting impression for most visitors to Dunedin is what can only be described as good old fashioned southern hospitality. If the character of a place is determined by the character of the people that live there, Dunedin has more to offer than most.

James Roque - Legal Alien

Macbeth Without the Shakespeare Bollocks

Dee’s Cafe & Bar, 403 Princes Street, Dunedin, Otago Thursday 8 March 2018 – Saturday 10 March 2018 7:00pm – 8:00pm General Admission: $15.00 Concession: $13.00 In 2017, James Roque realised he’d been pronouncing his own Filipino last name wrong for the last 18 years. So he adjusted it back. And since then he’s been feeling like a brand new immigrant (an immigrant who has NZ citizenship now, but still, immigrant as f***). Join James as he wades through the sometimes nasty swamp that is the topic of immigration and dissects what it means to be an immigrant in today’s western world from a brown perspective.

Shakespeare shamefully misrepresented a man who, in his time, was a popular Scottish king. His death, at the hands of Malcolm, led to Anglicisation of Scotland… and eventually ‘the English play.’ If you want to know the truth about Scotland’s last great Celtic king and hear some smutty jokes, then this is for you.

Dunedin Chinese Garden A perfect miniature of a traditional Chinese landscape painting, the Dunedin Chinese Garden encapsulates the essence of nature. It was built to take visitors on a journey to a greater understanding of Dunedin’s history, culture, heritage and tradition. It is the only traditional Chinese Scholar’s Garden in the southern hemisphere. The Dunedin Chinese Garden was designated a Garden of National Significance in 2011 by the New Zealand Gardens Trust.

Predominantly of volcanic origin, the Otago Peninsula is steep and on the Pacific side very rugged. The harbour side, warm, sunny and sheltered, has a micro climate that is better than anywhere else on the Otago coast. The 20 km long shallow-bottomed fiord, Otago Harbour, is the home of an abundance of wildlife. World famous are the Royal Albatross and the endangered Yellow Eyed Penguin (Hoiho), but also the Little Blue Penguin and the Stewart Island Shag can be seen in their natural environment. A number of walkways give you access to the many breathtaking views and sheer cliff faces like ‘The Chasm’ and ‘Lovers Leap’.

At the entrance to the Otago Harbour the peninsula rises to Taiaroa Head, home to a breeding colony of northern royal albatross the only colony of albatross to be found on an inhabited mainland. The viewing centre for the albatross colony is one of the peninsula’s main ecotourism attractions, along with other wildlife such as seals and yellow-eyed penguins. Most of the Otago Peninsula is freehold farming land, with increasing numbers of small holdings or lifestyle blocks. Some biodiversity sites such as Taiaroa Head are managed as sanctuaries for wildlife. Many species of seabirds and waders in particular may be found around the tidal inlets, including spoonbills, plovers, and herons.

Oamaru, meaning ‘place of Maru’ in Maori, is the largest town in the Waitaki district in North Otago. European settlement began in 1853 and by 1860 the town was growing rich serving the pastoralists and gold miners. By the mid 1880’s the town centre had and an impressive array of buildings made from the locally-quarried limestone, many of these buildings remain today and are worth stopping in and viewing if you are in the area, they contain a mixture of shops, galleries and food & drink outlets. Bushy Beach Scenic Reserve is also a top spot to visit, with some stunning vistas from the viewing platforms, and if your lucky you may see some NZ Fur Seals/ Kekeno on the rocks below or the Yellow Eyed Penguin (before 9am or after 3pm).

Tham es St












The Blue Penguin or Korora which is the Maori name, have been nesting along the edge of the Oamaru Harbour since the early 1990’s. Viewing is a must if you are in Oamaru and it is advised to book a tour to ensure you get the best possible experience.

Tyne St

The Elephant Rocks are only a short picturesque drive from Oamaru and about 5 kms south of Duntroon, they are a collection of large weathered limestone rocks, not necessarily shaped like elephants but very unique in their own way. They vary in size from approximately 1-10 metres across and are naturally scattered over a grassy paddock. They are on privately owned land and sheep may be present, but access is allowed via a paddock directly opposite the parking bay. The location was also used in the first Chronicles of Narnia film in 2005.

Puzzling World has had a busy summer but not just with an influx of visitors, with many small additions, finishing touches and plans advanced to help cement their “weird” theme. Mid-December saw the unveiling of a large illusionary mural inside the businesses’ Sculptillusion Gallery. “We’ve been very lucky to have had an extremely talented local artist, Minhal Al Halabi on site to create an incredible scene that blends NZ native bush, iconic London landmarks and operatic superstars together with morphing lions, birds, fish and many other whimsical touches. In line with our business always seeking to add intrigue to all our spaces, this fits the bill!” says Duncan Spear, marketing manager Also in time for the holidays, the latest in Holographic advertising was given a home in the Hologram Hall. A Holoblade, featuring a rotating display of filling Coke cans, fluttering butterflies, rotating Nike shoes and other objects seemingly floating in space has proven yet again to be a simple but popular offering. A new year will also bring a new exhibition to the business that celebrates what might be described as “genius stupidy” A large display of impossible or useless inventions and creations by local sculptors and artists will be on show from April, all aimed to amuse, confuse and amaze. From Steam-powered Walking sticks, Umbrella Shoes, a Multi-Tool glove, 2-Way Bike and many more items, we ask the question - how would that ever work?! With an incredible stone sculpture commission just completed by another talented local due to be added in March, if you haven’t been to “Wanaka’s World of Weirdness” recently, now’s the time!

The Catlins offers a glimpse of rural New Zealand set amid native forests, fringed by high cliffs and golden beaches. This spectacular coastal stretch is home to an array of marine life – sea lions are regular beach visitors, while dolphins frolic in the shallows. Keep your eyes peeled for the rare but distinctive hoiho, the Yelloweyed penguin. Here, you’ll also find a world of waterfalls that are amongst the most photographed in the world.

Some of the highlights of the Catlins include; Walking the rugged coastline to Nugget Point 100 metres above the heaving Southern Ocean; seal pups play in their sheltered rock pools below and thousands of sea birds circle around the iconic lighthouse and rock nuggets which have been a menace to ships for over 150 years. The water tumbles over rock faces at the spectacular Purakaunui Falls and McLean Falls which are highlights of the Catlins. It is a short 10 minute walk to both waterfalls through tall temperate rainforest where you will hear the call of the tui and bellbird. At Lake Wilkie you will find a piece of tranquillity. Time seems to slow down at this serene, reflective lake where the reeds stand still and the forest above whispers lightly in the breeze. Feel dwarfed by the sheer size of the Cathedral Caves. The caves are only accessible very close to low tide. Walk for ten minutes through ancient native forest and suddenly a beach appears before you. The brooding entrance to the caves is at the northern end of the beach where you will hear the dripping of water into reflective pools and breathe in the ocean smells.


The Catlins A new wonder every 10 minutes… Cascading waterfalls & hidden lakes Geological forms Unique wildlife Rugged coastal beauty

Curio Bay is renowned for its scenic, wildlife and recreational values in one small area. This idyllic bay is home to the 180 million year old Petrified Forest, dolphins and yellow-eyed penguins. Just down the road is Waikawa, a small fishing settlement which is also teeming with wildlife.

Tunnel Hill

The tunnel was dug out in 1891 by hardy workers using shovels and picks to allow coal carrying trains through McDonald’s Saddle. The 200 metre tunnel opened up a new gateway to Owaka. The last train ride through the tunnel was in 1971 and the rail was dismantled sometime after that. The tunnel now serves as a fun night-time walkway.

Coastal Orepuki overlooks views of the dreamy South Coast – either blue seas sparkling in bright sun, or windswept waves battering the shore. Look carefully from the grey stone beaches of Te Waewae Bay and you may just catch a glimpse of New Zealand’s largest pod of Hector’s dolphins. For visitors, one of the latest and greatest attractions is the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track. Opened in 2001, the track’s reputation as a world-class eco-tourism destination was cemented when it was named a finalist in the British Guild of Travel Writers’ annual tourism awards. At nearby Clifden, a quick walk into the Dean Forest leads to a 1000-year-old Totara tree. Then you can take your pick of Lakes Hauroko or Monowai, both bordering Fiordland National Park, and both offering great fishing, as well as wonderful bush walks and jet boating.

Throughout Western Southland, accommodation is as much an experience as a bed for the night. While there is plenty of choice in the townships, don’t overlook the hinterland. Farm stays on genuine working sheep, cattle or dairy farms offer valuable insights into southern farming life Back on the Southern Scenic Route, a short drive over the Blackmount Road takes travelers to Manapouri and Te Anau townships - the gateway to the World Heritage-ranked Fiordland National Park, where a wealth of new experiences await.

Hokonui Moonshine Museum

  Situated in Gore’s Arts and Heritage Precinct, the museum celebrates the history of illicit whisky-making in the south. ‘Hokonui’ or ‘Hokonui Moonshine’ had its origins in the Highlands of Scotland, but made its presence felt in the Gore District with the advent of localised Prohibition in 1902.   51 years of subsequent “drought” gave rise to an illicit moonshining tradition, and over 30 resulting prosecutions.   The museum explores this colourful history through recreations, audio-visuals and original artifacts.

Legends Live here

A collection like no other In a location like no other. Every year hundreds of visitors from all around the world journey to E Hayes and Sons’ Invercargill store for one reason - to see a remarkable vintage motorcycle with their own eyes and stand in the presence of a legend. It’s a legend that tells a story of passion and determination to develop a motorcycle to its full potential - beyond what would even seem possible. It’s the story of ‘The World’s Fastest Indian’. The legend of Burt Munro. Today, Burt Munro’s original World’s Fastest Indian Scout forms the centerpiece of a unique display of over one hundred classic, vintage and modern motorcycles, automobiles, engines, equipment and memorabilia that makes up the E Hayes Motorworks Collection of classic and vintage motor vehicles. From working examples of early vintage machinery, pumps, engines and lathes to our original shop delivery van and a range of classic automobiles and motorcycles - from turn of the century models to racing bikes of the modern era - you’ll find it all here in a collection unlike any other.
