Where NZ rare creatures habitat and nature flows at its door

Including its natural habitat of rare creatures and sea birds, Tairoa Headland is the end of the Otago Peninsula coastal drive and also the entrance into its 175 year old Port. Breath in Panoramic views, the Maori Otakou Marae (1840), woodland gardens, coastal country scenes coupled with a visit to Larnach Castle (1870), driving hills and dales to the Cargill's Castle ruin, (1870) with a stop at The Esplanade by the Sea. Your sojourn is completed happily. Lucky you if you sight wildlife too!
