Otago Peninsula – New Zealand

Taiaroa Head and the magnificent Royal Albatross

Whenever New Zealand is mentioned as a tourist destination, Milford Sound, Queenstown, bungy jumpy are some that immediately come to mind. There is a not so well-known destination that should be on everyone’s list. Taiaroa Head, a short distance from Dunedin.

Taiaroa Head is alive with wildlife species, many of them rarely found nesting seabirds. The jewel in the crown is the Northern Royal Albatross. To view this majestic seabird flying at speeds up to 120 kilometres per hour is an invigorating sight; one that should not be missed.
