South Island

Coastal Otago

An oddity that works. The Scots did their best to tame the beast but wildlife still prevails. Get a hip flask of whisky, a kilt and stride the coast with purpose.

Moeraki Boulders: Half way between Oamaru and Dunedin off state highway one. Interesting spherical boulders on the beach. About a 5 minute walk from the main lookout area you can access these rocks at both high and low tide. You just see more at low tide. The little Moeraki township is also well worth checking out, just 3km's further south, great eateries, shops and a very nice view up the coast.

Check the weather when driving south to Dunedin in the winter. Snow can easily fall to sea level and the road over Mt Cargill is often closed for hours.
