Hotels in Otago

Otago Details

Otago is a region in New Zealand. The area has a rugged landscape featuring Skippers Canyon, Hells Gate and Bridal Veil Falls. There are deep glacial lakes and rich rainforest. The region also supports a number of interesting towns and cities. At Dunedin, you can view St. Pauls Cathedral (1880) and the Otago Museum. On Otago Peninsula, there is Larnach Castle (1871-1885) and the Moeraki Boulders Scenic Reserve. While you are in the region, you should also go to visit Queenstown. Queenstown tourism cites a number of possible natural and built sites to include in your agenda. Major Queenstown attractions include Underwater World and Lake Wakatipu. In Lake Wakatipu and at Walter Peak High Country Farm, you can catch a glimpse of Queenstown culture. In the former, you can see the Kiwi Haka Maori performances or wander through the Kiwi and Birdlife Park; in the latter, you can catch a glimpse of how a traditional sheep station works. Other Queenstown sights include the vineyards, the Skyline Gondola and the Deer Park. Other things to do in Queenstown involve activities. You can go shopping in Queenstown at the mall or take part in some type of adventure sport such as trekking. This will involve more time than a weekend in Queenstown.
