NZ South – Otago Peninsula, Highcliff Rd

There are two main ways to get out onto the Otago Peninsula - the low road and the high road.  Both have their beautiful features!  This is the the high road from Dunedin to Larnach Castle / Portobello.

  1. Gorgeous stuff!

  2. Yes! absolutely gorgeous :)

  3. When we were there we got lost between the castle and the bird observatory at the end of the peninsula (tried to go the back way. duh). From memory the roads are little more than goat tracks with laughable fencing.
