Day 5: Otago - Dunedin - Waihola Lake


We got away early to head to Allans Beach on the Otago Peninsula. After a long dusty track and a short walk over a field we wandered onto a huge expanse of sand with no one else in sight. It was an amazingly large isolated beach and was lovely.

We strolled along the entire length of the beach, passing a couple of sea lions and a couple of stray humans who appeared from nowhere. On the way back we very randomly passed a naked couple on the beach and felt a little uncomfortable as they were grinning at us! Walking pace quickened, we headed back to Queenie and drove on to Dunedin. We drove to Baldwin Street – the world’s steepest street (unbelievably steep!) – before having a lovely cycle around Dunedin.

It would have been great to stay in Dunedin for longer but time constraints and lack of cheap camping sites meant we had to settle to for a half pint of a local brew called Emersons at a local bar (which we can thoroughly recommend) before heading out of Dunedin to camp at picturesque Lake Waihola.
