The Uniqueness of Otago

People have always been drawn to unusual places. Something out of the ordinary. When Captain James Cook first navigated around New Zealand, he wrote into his journal of way-points he could see from his ship. He has written of the Cooks Head Rock near the Toko Mouth and made mention of Saddle Hill in Dunedin.

Otago is made up from a very diverse landscape, from the Dunedin Volcanic Complex and the Moeraki Boulders to the peaks of the Remarkables and the Bannockburn Sluicings. Otago really does have a little bit of something for everybody. My adventures below will take you to rocky crags, sunken lands, Basalt Columns and large mountains of Sand.

Now go and enjoy the same places your ancestors have.

Where are these Abnormalities?
