The Otago Peninsula is predominantly of volcanic origin, steep and on the Pacific Ocean side very rugged.
The harbour side, warm, sunny and sheltered and has a micro climate that is better than anywhere else on the Otago coast.
A number of walkways give you access to many breathtaking views and sheer cliff faces like "The Chasm" and "Lovers Leap".
The top of Harbour Cone, climbing to 315 meters or just over 1000 feet above sea level, can be reached by foot from several places.
Add to this Larnach Castle the only castle in Australasia, Glenfalloch Gardens,
the Marine Studies Centre Aquarium, local Arts & Crafts and your holiday is complete.
