An old quarry filled with flowers

If you like flowers and gardens, then this ones for you. Located in an old bluestone quarry that suppled rock to buildings like the Dunedin Railway and the University Clock Building. It is mainly planted with Spring flowers and most likely the best time to check it out. Lots of lovely little trails to wonder around and a very awesome viewing platform with photographs and history write ups. This is also a great rock climbing location with 11 routes, and the whole place overlooks Port Otago! You might as well wonder up here when there are big ships coming into town.


From Dunedin, just head out to Port Chalmers and swing a left onto Mount St when you hit the center of town. Take the hard right onto Church St and the Dell will be up a few hundred meters on your left. Well done you made it.
