Otago can offer kind of history - the larnach castle and its gardens, but also lots of nature - especialy the only one landing for albatross. Great place!

Amazing views over the water and hills. Loved the drive on a coach trip from a cruise ship. There were places to stop and take photos. Definitely recommend this tour/trip.
