Public transport question

by vanchi228

pls anyone knows the public transport website of Dunedin, can you tell me?
is there any public bus that goes to the Otago Peninsula and how long does it take to travel there from the city centre?

I found some information about a bus called citibus (gold and blue color) that offers $6 all day fare. Does anyone know where I can catch this bus from the city?

Also, I'm planning to stay at this backpacker 36 Arden Street, Opoho , Dunedin, New Zealand. Do you know how far it is from the CBD and how to get there by public bus?

Many thanks for your help!

You can get the hop on/hop off city tour bus from the Octagon right in the centre of Dunedin - that is also where the main tourist information office is.

The link is:

The backpackers you mention is probably 15 minutes walk from the Octagon area. For bus info check:

In addition to what Alison said, I am rather sure that there is no public bus to Otago Peninsula, at least I have never seen any. I suggest you rent a car for a day, there is so much to see and do on the Peninsula, and at very remote places which you can only access by car. The organised bus tours are rather expensive, so renting a car and paying the entry fee for the Albatross Colony would probably be cheaper in total.

Re: Public transport question

There are sort of two routes to take out over the Otago Peninsula: a low road and a high road. The high road gives you all the nice views and is the route you would take if you were going to Larnach's Castle. Quite possibly the tourist buses go this way en route to the albatross colony too, but I'm not sure. There are many strange little exposed beaches, inlets and colonies of birdlife to discover if you do rent a car, which is a good suggestion. If it's albatross and seals you want to see, then you take the low road and just drive to the ends of the earth, at which point is the colony at Taiaroa Head (which is up on a cliff). This takes, I would guess, an hour by car, and slightly longer by tour bus as the low road is a winding one. It is wise to book in advance if you want to have an actual close encounter with the albatross, although the visitors centre at Taiaroa Head has good webcams to watch their nest activity for free, and outside you can often see the birds flying close overhead. There is a public bus along the low road that goes from Cumberland St in the city centre as far as Harrington Point, which unfortunately is maybe 15 or 20 minutes' drive short of the colony. The townships of Macandrew Bay and Portobello are on the regular weekday low-road public bus route, and are good places to visit if you're into seeing artists' studios. Also, they're good places to buy a nice New Zealand ice-cream, which is quite different from European and American stuff. The marine aquarium is at Portobello, although not really within walking distance from the bus stop. From Mac Bay there is a walking track that takes you up on to the peninsula hump, where you can get good views of the city at no charge. Good luck!

Travel Tips for Dunedin

Fur seals...

by dragontml


New Zealand Fur Seals live on the rocks and can be seen here day or night, all year round. From mid to late December you will be treated to intimate views of the seals, in the privacy of their own home, nursing their young.

Moeraki Boulders

by Atre

Moeraki Boulders is a beach not far from Dunedin where many spherical boulders are located. Some of these rocks are almost as high as the average person and are dotted along the beach for roughly a kilometre. They have been created through the action of wind and waves on chunks of rock fallen from a cliff face, resulting in what looks like a giants marbles.

Serious Food

by TomorrowsAngel about Nova

Nova was the overall winner of the 2002 Nobilo Wine Group Best Cafe Awards, and the service, food and presentation has not slipped since winning.
The cafe is handily located next to the Dunedin Art Gallery.
You can pop in for a hearty and healthy weekday brekkie/brunch.
Throughout the day, a selection of cafe sandwiches, burgers, light snacks and yummy desserts are available.
Dining at night includes excellent NZ grown fare, such as eye fillet with onion marmalade, scalloped potatoes and red wine jus. All their red meat is organically sourced from Gore. Over the years it has won numerous food and also a barista award. Current chef, Volker Speigel, was trained in Germany and baker Brigette Hudon bakes all the breads and cake. The kiwi breakfast - toasted ciabatta, poached eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and kumara hashbrowns is soo big I couldn't finish it.
Others had: green thai chicken curry, fresh fruit salad with greek youghurt and homemade muesli, and a hamburger with french fries.
All the food lived up to its reputation and I'll definitely be back for more!!

Monarch Wildlife Cruise

by 80-bettyboo

One of the best way to see wildlife, albatross, penguins and sea lions...
You will have 3 different options
1.Wildlife Cruise from Wellers Rock : Which is 45 minutes drive from the city . It's 1 hour cruise, magnificent viwe of wildlife. Transportation is available if you book ahead.
P/S I have done the cruise option the weather was rainy and cold however we have seen heaps of Albatross and sea lions, the weather shouldn't change your mind.
2.Penunsula/Cruise : Cruise the length of the beautiful Otago Harbour a scenic Otago Peninsula bus tour. It takes half day.
3.The full Otago Harbour and Taiaroa Head wildlife cruise, scenic Otago Peninsula bus tour, and guided tours of the Royal Albatross Colony, the Yellow Eyed Penguin Reserve Options include a tour of Larnach Castle.

Dunedin Railway Station

by salisbury3933

There is one service out of Dunedin station, a tourist railway known as the Taieri Gorge Railway, which I would like to do in the future.

The Southerner (Christchurch-Invercargill) used to stop, however the service was discontinued some years ago, short-sightedly in my view.

In any case, it is a very attractive building.
