The Final Sightseeing Day in New Zealand in Dunedin, South Island

A guided tour (including seeing the world’s steepest residential street as certified by the Guinness World Records), time spent in a fun coffee shop, and some shopping at the end marked the final hours of our stay in Dunedin, New Zealand.  We took an evening flight back to Auckland to stay in an airport hotel to catch a flight back home the next morning.

A Coffee Stop Before Reaching Dunedin

I had done some research before we set off on our New Zealand South Island road trip from Queenstown to Dunedin but except for the lunch stop in Clyde, I didn’t really know if we were going to make any other stops along the way.  The fast-paced driving (at 100 kph which is much faster than what we are used to in Japan) however was wearing me out so we turned off at a rest area and found this cute cafe (unrelated to the rest area) in even a smaller village than the first one.
