Dunedin, New Zealand

Having made our individual journeys to the lovely, southern city of Dunedin, the second largest city in the South Island, we found ourselves comfortably accommodated at the Distinction Dunedin Hotel, located in the center of the ‘old’ city.

Stretching from New Guinea to the Arafura Sea and eastward to Fiji, the archipelagos that make up Melanesia are almost unimaginably idyllic. Traveling to the Melanesian Islands offers an endless supply of clear blue waters and palm-fringed beaches, not to mention a diverse Melanesian culture.

Blog Post

New Zealand’s remote location has made its wildlife exceptional. The outlying sub-Antarctic islands are amongst the wildest, least disturbed, places on Earth.  In fact, the collection of archipelagos remained unsettled by humans (and other mammals) for so long that its native animals often have characteristics unlike any others on the planet.
