The Otago Penin­sula is ar­guably the most pre­cious wildlife habi­tat in New Zealand and the farm owned by the Reid fam­ily is right at the fore­front of this head­land. Na­tures Won­ders is a Reid fam­ily con­ser­va­tion ef­fort, driven by Perry and his wife Tracey and of­fers a range of dif­fer­ent tour op­tions: Al­ba­tross Ex­press Tour Take in Dunedin's won­der­ful wildlife from a dif­fer­ent view­point - on the wa­ter. This one hour tour in an all-weather cata­ma­ran takes in the world's only main­land royal al­ba­tross breed­ing colony, a plethora of seabirds, as well as New Zealand fur seals, marine life and the stun­ning land­scape of Otago Penin­sula. Wildlife Tour Ex­pe­ri­ence an ex­hil­a­rat­ing cross-coun­try tour in an eight-wheel all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle. Marvel at breath-tak­ing 360 de­gree views of Otago Har­bour and the penin­sula and get up-close to New Zealand fur seals and their pups bask­ing on the rocks and swim­ming in nat­u­ral pools, lit­tle blue pen­guins, the rare and shy yel­low eyed pen­guin in their nests, and a breed­ing colony of Cor­morants (spot­ted shag) nes­tled on a rugged cliff face. A re­duced ver­sion of this tour is also avail­able via coach. Sheep Shed Tour As a work­ing farm, Na­tures Won­ders pro­vides a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to en­counter a gen­uine sheep-shear­ing shed in ac­tion. Watch as the dogs move the sheep into the pens, the shear­ers re­move the fleece, and it is cleaned and pressed into bales for sale. Na­tures Won­ders also has a mod­ern restau­rant/cafe that can cater for up to 100 peo­ple. Stun­ning views of the Pa­cific Ocean to the hori­zon and the panoramic coastal views make this an ideal venue for wed­dings, pri­vate func­tions and cor­po­rate events all year round. Na­tures Won­ders is lo­cated at Ta­iaroa Head on the Otago Penin­sula, Dunedin. For more in­for­ma­tion phone (03) 478-1150, email info@na­tureswon­, or visit www. na­tureswon­
