Yet another industrial port (Port Chalmers) and forced to take a shuttle into town a fair distance (30 mins), arriving at the Octagon area of the city. From here, we walked quite a long distance (30 mins) up some steep hills to Olveston House. They do hour long guided tours only here, so we did that and found it very interesting. It was a beautiful old home with mostly original furnishings and ...

We used the Ship Shuttle here again to get to the centre of the city. The charge for this was $10 for the return trip. This is a relatively small city. We visited the Railway Station, the Octagon area, the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum - which was really interesting and well done. In the afternoon, we visited the Orokonui Ecosanctuary and got a taxi back to Port Chalmers. We spent a little time ...

First, we did the Viking optional Otago Peninsula and Taiaroa Head Wildlife Cruise. It was very enjoyable! The Viking bus drives less than 5 minutes (you could see it from the ship) out of the industrial port to a smaller marina where you board a smaller ship, The Monarch. About half the seating is uncovered (in the front) and half is covered (in the back). The captain gives commentary from the ...

Princess supplied a return bus shuttle into Duneden for about $35 Australian. Well worth it. Many passengers used the local bus but had to wait a very long time between buses. We actually stayed in Port Chalmers as we had been to Dunedin before. easy walk from Terminal to town. ...

I did the excursion called, "Highlights of Dunedin" and would have enjoyed it more if we could have purchased a one-way transfer ticket to return to the port after our excursion. We stopped at the Olveston Historic Home and the Botantic Garden but I would have liked to have walked around the town more but didn't want to deal with the drama of arranging my own transportation back to the ship so I ...
