Brighton Beach
track in the Oteake Conservation Area (about two hours drive from
Dunedin) – a five-hour epic ride climbing through the distinctive New
Zealand high country to a height of 1600 metres with awesome views and
brilliant downhill. There’s even the historic Danseys Pass Pub near the end
to restore vital fluids!
What else not to miss…
The ride or walk to Flagstaff, Mt Cargill or
Harbour Cone which offer views for miles; take a boogie board and surf
the sand dunes at Sandfly Bay; rockclimb at Long Beach where there are
great climbs for all levels; hire a full suspension bike and ride the world
class downhill tracks on Signal Hill; do an overnight tramp into the
Silverpeaks and stay at Jubilee Hut.
After the ride…
Formosa on Albany Street does an organic and healthy
take on Asian food; Albar or Inch Bar have good music and great local
beers – Green Man is a local craft brew to try.
Chill out spot…
Breakfast at the Otago Farmers Market (every
Saturday at the Dunedin Railway Station north car park) where Nick picks
up a chocolate croissant and coffee from the market stalls.
One of Dunedin’s own celebrity chefs, Alison Lambert, can be found
at the Otago Farmers Market every Saturday morning sharing her
cooking tips from the mobile kitchen, so it’s no surprise she puts a visit
to this gourmet heaven on top of her must-do itinerary for food lovers.
There are more than 70 stalls showcasing local and seasonal foods with
many of the artisans on hand for a chat.
What to try…
A hot New Zealand whitebait sandwich or bacon
buttie, Evansdale Cheese, Unique Hangis (a specialty of meat,
vegetables and stuffing covered and cooked under soil for a unique
flavour), Ocho chocolate and coffee liqueurs by Quick Brown Fox.
Every other day of the week Lambert is dishing up a breakfast to
lunch menu suited to seasonal local produce at her Delicacy Café at the
roundabout in Maori Hill. The café culture has blossomed in Dunedin
Dunedin is a very compact city,
most things are in walking distance.
It has the facilities of a larger city
without all the hustle and bustle
where the high student population has driven a diverse and plentiful
supply of cheap eats.
Where to eat out…
Spelt Bakery for a fantastic pie and great loaf
of bread; Edmonds fresh fish shop in Green Island for the freshest fish;
Saigon Van for fresh Vietnamese cuisine for lunch or dinner (Asian
cuisine is hugely popular in Dunedin); Pier 21 for seaside views while
you eat; and The Best Café for the best fish (Blue Cod is a specialty)
and (hand cut) chips in Dunedin.
