Silversea Luxury Cruises A DUNEDIN (Port Chalmers)

DUNEDIN (Port Chalmers)

The south-easterly coast of New Zealand's wild southern island is a haven for outdoor adventures, with masses of raw scenic beauty and thrilling coastline. Heading the Otago Harbour, Dunedin is a cosmopolitan city of culture and architectural splendour, with a distinctly tartan flare. Settled by the Scots in 1848, the romantically misty valleys and moody landscapes, continue to capture the hearts of visitors to these distant shores. Searing bagpipes echo down the streets in the Edinburgh of the South, which wears its Scottish origins proudly. View more

Gothic revival architecture is scattered liberally, including the magnificent university - with its glorious clocktower - and the city's grand cathedral. Head to the elegant Octagon to see the statue to Robert Burns, whose nephew was a city founder. The railway station is perhaps the pick of this city's many artistic structures. Its glowing gardens and pretty mosaics add extra detail to the elegant, gingerbread building. It's also the perfect jumping-off point for romantic rail adventures along the coastline. The melodramatic coastline of the Otago Peninsula boasts dramatic cliffs and sea-sprayed beaches, as well as an abundance of animals. Explore cliffs laced with tunnels and hidden walkways, to get you up close and personal with Yellow-eyed penguins. Sea lions and seals also sprawl out on windswept beaches, drifting in and out of indulgent dozes. The south island's second-largest city regularly receives a top-up of youthful energy thanks to its healthy student population. Not that Dunedin is lacking a distinctly quirky personality of its own, as showcased by the event where locals race thousands of chocolate orbs down the world's steepest street - Baldwin Street. Museums in the city tell of Chinese influences, as well as the stories of early Maori settlers. Round off an active day sampling a South Island institution - an icy beer from Speight's Brewery.

Albatross & Penguins

Otago Peninsula is renowned for its diverse marine wildlife and spectacular scenery. This tour offers the opportunity of seeing the Royal Albatross and Yellow Eyed Penguin.


From the pier in Port Chalmers, board the coach with your driver-guide and head south along Otago Harbour to the city of Dunedin passing through the downtown area en route to Otago Peninsula. Your coastal 90-minute drive up the Otago Peninsula takes you past picturesque seaside communities, including Macandrew Bay and Portobello.


Penguin Conservation Reserve

Upon arrival at the Yellow-Eyed Penguin Conservation Reserve, listen to an introductory talk on the penguins and visit the rehabilitation facility where adult and juvenile penguins are being cared for. Then a mini-van will take you across farmland to the penguin reserve, located in the sand dunes behind the beach. Here, begin your guided walk through a unique system of hides and tunnels and learn about the conservation efforts to preserve the penguin population at the reserve. Re-board the coach for the brief drive to the Royal Albatross Colony.


Royal Albatross Colony

The famous Royal Albatross Colony is located at the tip of Taiaroa Head and is the world's only mainland breeding colony of these magnificent birds. A type of petrel, the Royal Albatross is one of nature's largest birds, with a wingspan of up to 10 feet (three metres). After the naturalist provides a brief lecture with a video presentation, head out to see the birds in their natural habitat from a special viewing station.


Lunch will follow at the Glenfalloch Restaurant (or similar) before transferring back to the pier in Port Chalmers.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking. There is a steep paved path to the viewing station at the Albatross Centre and at Penguin Place, the path is a grassy surfaces, with up and down inclines in some areas and approximately 100 steps to climb. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Bring a warm jacket and wear flat, comfortable shoes. The drive to the Otago Peninsula includes approximately one hour on winding road. Although the sighting of Albatross and Penguins is a frequent occurrence; it cannot be guaranteed. Order of sites may vary.

Larnach Castle & Olveston House

Explore a pair of the most lavish and historic estates in New Zealand during this scenic, half-day sightseeing excursion to Larnach Castle and Olveston House.


Dunedin, Larnach Castle

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive along the coastline and through Dunedin en route to the magnificent Larnach Castle, the only castle in New Zealand. Upon arrival, begin your guided walking tour of the castle. Built between 1873 and 1877 and perched atop the highest point on the beautiful Otago Peninsula, the castle commands breath-taking, 360-degree views of Dunedin and the Otago Harbour.


Larnach Castle Tour, Wood Ceilings, Antiques, Castle Ballroom, Morning or Afternoon Tea

Inside the castle, your surrounds are equally dramatic. Thrill to magnificent wood ceilings carved by the best European craftsmen and a superb collection of New Zealand antiques, including a unique, nine-piece totara knot suite, all masterfully incorporated into the castle's 43 different rooms. As you stroll from room-to-room, your guide brings the castle to life with stories about the brilliant, yet tumultuous, career of William Larnach. Following your tour, proceed to the Castle Ballroom for morning or afternoon tea.


Olveston House, Manicured Gardens

Next, re-board your coach and continue on to historic Olveston House. Designed by London architect, Sir Ernest George, and built between 1904 and 1907, the home is set amidst an acre of manicured gardens and abuts the lush parkland, or 'Town Belt', that surrounds the centre of Dunedin. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of this 35-room Edwardian mansion, which is filled with treasures from all over the world. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

Mount Cargill & the Organ Pipes

Hike Mount Cargill, the most prominent peak in Dunedin and home to the amazing Organ Pipes, the basalt columns formed 10 million years ago during the area's volcanic eruptions. For a limited few, this trekking adventure offers a look at one of the natural wonders of southern New Zealand.


Mount Cargill

From Port Chalmers, transfer by mini-van to the base of the Mount Cargill Walkway, the starting point of your hike. Begin by hiking through a forest of secondary growth, up the steep and undulating unpaved trail. At the viewpoint, you are rewarded with superb vistas - look out over Otago Harbour, Mihiwaka, Mount Kettle, Blueskin Bay, and the Silver Peaks.


Next, your trail takes you into Mount Cargill's native bush, containing broadleaf, tree fuchsia, pepperwood, mountain cedar and emergent totara and many lush ferns.


A highlight of your guided walk is a stop to see the incredible Organ Pipes, the 10-million-year-old basalt formations created during the volcanic activity that formed Otago's Harbour. Once past the Organ Pipes, you will notice the vegetation becomes sparser and stunted as you ascend the pathway, which provides ever-expanding views. Wander through manuka, kanuka and dracophyllum scrub, finally emerging at Buttars Peak, which rises to an elevation of over 2,000 feet (609 metres) above sea level.


Savour light refreshments as you take in the panoramic views around you, before descending down the same track. Return to Port Chalmers via Dunedin and stop briefly in the Octagon (time permitting), the centre of Dunedin before arriving at the pier. Guests wishing to remain in the city may opt to take the last shuttle bus back to the ship.

Nature's Wonders

Stunning scenery and viewing seals, penguins and other marine birds are the highlights of this off-road experience in a specially-designed six-seater Argo vehicle. Argos are amphibious, all-terrain, off-road vehicles that venture into areas others cannot.


Otago Harbour

Depart the pier via coach with your driver-guide, travel from Port Chalmers along the shore Otago Harbour and Sawyers Bay to Dunedin. From there, continue out to Otago Peninsula and along the pretty coastline to Taiaroa Head. Taiaroa Head is unique for the diversity of wildlife which abounds on this small headland and includes the only mainland albatross colony in the world. Historically, the headland was in use by the Maori as a defensive retreat, long before being fortified by European settlers in the 1880s.


Taiaroa Head

At Taiaroa Head, board your vehicle for a special one-hour tour to view the many wildlife inhabitants in the area. Highlights of the journey are the New Zealand fur seals that live on the rocks and the sea lions that are naturally sand dwellers. Experience the thrill of the ride on the Argo that takes you places other vehicles would find difficult to access. Half way through the tour, the groups will switch over and continue the tour via 4WD coaster bus.


Re-board the coach and return to the ship via the Otago Peninsula's High Road.

Otago Wildlife Cruise

Discover the abundant migratory seabirds, penguins, seals and other wildlife along the Otago Peninsula during this panoramic sightseeing cruise.


Port Chalmers, MV Monarch, Cruise, Coastal Views

Board your coach for a short transfer to the motorised sightseeing vessel, the MV Monarch. Upon arrival, receive your safety and tour instructions, embark the boat and begin your scenic, approximately two-hour cruise showcasing amazing local wildlife in its natural habitat. As you pull away from the dock, take in expansive views of picturesque Port Chalmers. Founded in 1844 during the Otago Gold Rush, this bohemian seaside town raised a memorial to commemorate Port Chalmers as the departure point for the Antarctic expeditions of Captain Robert Falcon Scott of 1901 and 1910. Something of an artists' colony today, several galleries, a small seafaring museum and a host of charming eateries make this a popular weekend excursion for locals.


Otago Peninsula, Taiaroa Head, Lighthouse

This voyage of discovery, rich with gems of geological and historical significance, is enhanced by the expert, insightful commentary of your skipper and crew. As your narrated cruise glides along the scenic Otago Peninsula, view Taiaroa Head. Named after a Maori chieftain, Taiaroa Head is unique in the world for the variety and richness of the bird and marine life found here. Learn about the history of the Cape with its dramatic, 1860s lighthouse, 100-year-old Fort, network of tunnels and the unique albatross-breeding colony that draws thousands of visitors every year. As the skipper steers his vessel in close to the headland, learn about the ongoing campaign to protect this magnificent seabird from extinction.


Albatross Colony, Penguins, Fur Seals, Sea Lions

The first Taiaroa-reared albatross chick flew in 1938, and this now-protected nature reserve is home to an established colony with a population of around 140 birds. Marvel at the sight of a soaring albatross. Held aloft on slim wings up to 10 feet (about three metres) across, they provide awesome aerial displays, and are just as intriguing to watch as they go about their daily activities of courtship, nest-building and chick-rearing. In addition, take in spectacular views and photographs of other inhabitants of Taiaroa Head. Observe blue penguins, New Zealand fur seals, and Hooker's sea lions as they fish for their supper along the rocky ledges. Your cruise concludes back at the pier. Upon arrival, disembark the boat and commence the short drive back to the ship.

Sea Kayaking along Otago Peninsula

This half-day kayaking adventure offers a fun experience along the scenic Otago Peninsula coastline.


From Port Chalmers, travel along the eastern shores of the Otago Harbour to Dunedin city. Turning to the western shores, proceed along Otago Peninsula towards the small settlement of Portobello.


After a safety briefing, all necessary equipment, including a life jacket, is distributed. Then, begin paddling along the rugged but beautiful coastline, making a beach stop en route to stretch your legs and to enjoy some light refreshments. Along the way, you may see many forms of marine life including royal albatross, yellow-eyed penguins, New Zealand fur seals and cormorants.


Upon the conclusion of your sea kayak adventure, re-board the mini-coach for the hour's return to the ship.

DAY ONE - Dunedin / Queenstown


On arrival in Dunedin, a brief sightseeing tour will be undertaken which will allow you to see the principal features of the city including the Railway Station, the Octagon, the Town Hall and the University of Otago. Dunedin is a bustling university city, located at the head of the long, narrow and wonderfully picturesque Otago Harbour. Grand 19th century public buildings and private homes hark back to the days of the 1860s when wealth from the goldfields of Central Otago poured into Dunedin, the then provincial capital. The Otago Peninsula that protects the harbour is a haven for wildlife seldom seen so close to a major city.


Continue by way of Clarkesville Junction and Lake Waihola to Beaumont and Lawrence into historical gold-mining country. Carry on through the valley, which was formed by the construction of the Roxburgh Hydro Dam, to your lunch venue.


After lunch pass through central Otago towns and over the Clutha River to your hotel, Millbrook Resort.


After a quick stop and freshen up travel onto Queenstown via the Kawarau Gorge where a photo stop will be made at the historic Suspension Bridge where commercial Bungy-jumping began. Queenstown born as an 1860s gold mining camp, 140 years later Queenstown has a compact and sophisticated downtown area tucked into a picturesque bay on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Dwarfed by the surrounding mountains, there are amazing views from everywhere. There is also a permanent buzz in the downtown area where you will find a lively café & bar scene and excellent shopping. This area has captured hearts and imaginations since the first Maori came in search of pounamu (greenstone) and the giant Moa bird. More recently, gold miners, adventurers, filmmakers, wine enthusiasts, Hollywood stars and US Presidents have been drawn to this magical region and its intense alpine energy.


Enjoy some free time in Queenstown then transfer to the steamer wharf and board the 1913 historic steamship TSS Earnslaw for a cruise across Lake Wakatipu to Walter Peak Sheep Station. Walter Peak is the perfect place to enjoy a gourmet barbecue dinner of New Zealand local produce. A glass of New Zealand wine or beer will accompany the meal. After dinner, watch a sheepdog demonstration and a sheep being shorn before you return on the TSS Earnslaw to Queenstown and transfer back to the hotel.


Please note: Shopping is possible at Walter Peak. Items available may include wool products, possum/merino blended clothing such as gloves, hats, scarves.


DAY TWO - Queenstown


Enjoy a full cooked buffet style breakfast at the hotel.


Early this morning, travel from your hotel and pass the town of Glenorchy, continuing through Paradise before entering Mount Aspiring National Park, and the start of the renowned Routeburn Track. Here, you will embark on a two-hour guided walk which commences by crossing a swing bridge and entering a spectacular red beech/tawhero dominated forest.


Since the 1880s the Routeburn Track has proved to be one of the most accessible and popular journeys into New Zealand's forests and mountains. The Routeburn Track passes through two national parks, Fiordland and Mount Aspiring, and is part of Te Wahipounamu, UNESCO South-West New Zealand World Heritage Area. After sampling this short section of the Routeburn Track, you will be transferred to Kinloch Lodge on the edge of Lake Wakatipu for lunch.


At Kinloch Lodge, enjoy a lovely lunch in a beautiful, peaceful setting at the head of the lake. After lunch, a short drive will take you to Glenorchy, where you will have free time to explore this picturesque town.


Board your coach and enjoy the scenic drive alongside Lake Wakatipu, and back to your hotel. Arrive back at your hotel late afternoon. Dinner is at leisure.


Please note: The hike on the Routeburn Track represents a 2-hour leisurely walk covering approximately 4 km (2.5 miles). The track has a gentle rise, with well-formed surface of gravel, rock or dirt. The track may get slippery in wet weather. There are rest rooms at the shelter at the start of the track and at about one hour into the walk. Bring along a light rain jacket or poncho. Wear comfortable walking shoes.


DAY THREE - Queenstown / Dunedin


After your breakfast, depart from your hotel and travel to Arrowtown, formerly a bustling gold-mining town in the 1860s. Upon arrival, you will have an opportunity to stroll along its quaint, tree-lined streets filled with galleries, cafes and shops.


Continue onto Te Anau along the Eastern shoreline of the stunning Lake Wakatipu before arriving at your lunch venue.


After lunch, pass through the legendary Homer Tunnel and through the magnificent Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound where you will board the tender to the ship.


Please note: This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure requires a moderate amount of walking for approximately 4.7 kilometres (2.9 miles), at times over uneven, cobblestone, rocky, grassy, and natural surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and embark/disembark the boat.
