    Glenfalloch Gardens.

    Glenfalloch means 'peaceful valley' and this place is indeed just that. The gardens are free (donations welcome) and there is plenty of parking. They are only a short drive from Dunedin along the scenic coastal Portobello Road, that hugs the Otago Harbour. There is a cafe on site that serves nice coffee and muffins. The gardens are privately owned.
    It was here that I first heard and saw bellbirds, one of NZ's most beautiful song birds. When I arrived, the valley was filled with their unusual bell like chimes and up by the pottery shop (yes, local pottery is sold here), I actually saw one. We don't have them in Auckland, so it was a treat. Later on, I began to see them a lot, especially in inland Otago... but this was special.
