Yellow-Eyed Penguins at Penguin Place

by seattle1299

Over on the Otago Peninsula is a nesting area of the yellow-eyed penguin, one of the rarest penguins in the world.

Land owners have set up a system of camouflaged trenches so people can get close to the penguins without disturbing them.

by sunnywong

Dunedin Railway Station was opened in 1906. It is built of Kokonga basalt with Oamaru limestone facings and incorporates a variety of shapes, textures and materials. The building went through a major restoration in 1999 to bring it back to its former glory.

Yellow Eyed Penguins

by Kate-Me

The Yellow Eyed penguin is the rarest penguin in the world, found only in the south of the south island of NZ & on some sub-antarctic islands.
To see them, we had to visit the Reid family farm (and not-for-profit, non govt funded eco tourism attraction) called Nature's Wonders, just a few mins past the Albatross centre. Besides running the farm, they are very committed and organised with conservation and protecting the wildlife on their property - the beach is closed to all but the penguins. They are active also with the elimination of predators, such as stoats, weasels & feral cats.

On the property, there are the Little Blue Penguins (very similar genetically to the Australian Fairy Penguin), NZ seals, and the Yellow Eyed penguin - plus a lot of rabbits, some of which you can even see on the beach, as we did (seemed quite funny - but at least they aren't predators).

To visit the wildlife in the area, several of the tours go by boat, then bus, then on foot, but our tour we selected because, unlike the other tours, it didn't have 1 1/2 hours of walking involved....we'd be taken down to the animals in still, aboard 6 wheeled all terrain vehicles called Argos (imported at a cost of about $140,000 ea from USA)
This was important as my mother is almost 65 and didn't want to walk (generally older age group on our tour) and also the day would have been too dismal and windy for being outside for too long, with rain always threatening. Each Argo held 3 people in the front, and about 4 in the back. There were about 4 Argos in our convoy which travelled the narrow gravelled, pot holed tracks on the farm at the top of the peninsula, and they rode much more comfortably than they looked. It didn't feel too touristy for us, and the service was very personalised from the guide driving each Argo. They (the family) were very passionate about what they did, and it shone through.
We were protected from the wind a bit by long waterproof coats which we were given to wear on our expedition.
