Accommodation in Otago

On the southern half of New Zealand's South Island is the region of Otago, an area known for incredible scenery, a landscape made up of hills and valleys, beautiful lakes, and charming villages boasting traditional stone architecture. Dunedin is the largest of the cities in Otago, and it makes for a great base to enjoy attractions like the octagonal city centre, the famed Robert Burns Statue, Larnach Castle, and Dunedin Botanical Gardens. Dunedin is known as the Edinburgh of New Zealand, and boasts serious Scottish pride, but it is also home to miles of tramping routes, scenic beaches, and the Peninsula, an amazing coastal spot where you can spot sea lions, admire seals, and even go fishing right from the shore. In Otago's Queenstown, located at the base of the Southern Alps, you can do everything from skiing in the winter to horseback riding along the perimeter of the stunning Lake Wakatipu. Head to Koekohe Beach to see the world-famous Moeraki Boulders, almost perfectly spherical boulders strewn along the sandy coastline. You could sample locally-made cheese, sip wines produced in the Central Otago Wine Region, or even try panning for gold in Alexandra. Truly, Otago offers something for everyone, making it an unbeatable holiday destination on the South Island.
