Our last stop before home-Dunedin (the old name for Edinburgh), a student city and full of beautiful old buildings.....and the Speights Brewery and Cadbury factory-woo hoo!
We started at the Speights Brewery...a must for any Kiwi or tourist as you get a fab tour around the 7 floors of brewery, and can drink as much as you can in half an hour at the end of the tour in thier own bar. They call Speights the Pride of the South, I thought it was pretty ok, and the adverts with singing sheep and dogs singing Happy Birthday weren't too bad either.
Once we'd had our fill of beer it was my turn-the Cadbury Factory. Although it doesn't taste quite the same as the UK (it's all in the milk apparently) it was quite something to climb up into a huge purple silo and watch a liquid chocolate waterfall come down metres away from you-if only I could have been under it!
After our fill of chocolate and beer we headed out of the city to drive around the Peninsula to see if we could stop any Yellow Eyed Penguins. Unfortunately we didn't see any, but had a nice drive along the coast...and then out of the city towards the steepest street in the world-Baldwin Street. We drove/ walked up most of it, at times it felt as if the car was going to flip over-but once at the top...what a view of the city.
After such a busy day it was time to head home, a long dive back to Christchurch ahead.
