Before leaving the motel in Twizle the manager, Colin, showed us some things to check out on the way to Dunedin. The first part was some pretty lake scenery, followed by fossils, Maori art, and local history but the weather was too rainy so we just kept going.
We drove out of the rain by the time we reached the coast and followed the old highway as Colin had suggested. It was beautiful but the best part was we got to see penguins and seals in the wild near Moeraki.
Arrived in Dunedin in rain again and found the motel. But it wasn't a motel. It was city centre apartments in an old converted church. It's called Chapel Apartments, is a great place to stay, and is right in the heart of Dunedin. Dunedin is another historical coastal town with lots of wonderful old buildings, with a magnificent harbour and landscape.
New Years in the Octagon is amazing everyone was so well behaved. Had a great time especially as the sun doesn't set go down till 10 O'clock. Party on People!!!!
