A Minute in New Zealand – Dunedin Chinese Garden [Video] (1 min)

A Minute in New Zealand – Dunedin Chinese Garden [Video] (1 min)

A short video from the Dunedin Chinese Garden, Dunedin, New Zealand.

A Minute in New Zealand - Dunedin Chinese Garden [Video] (1 min)

 

From the Chinese Garden Web Site…

““Most cherished in this mundane world is a place without traffic, truly in the midst of a city there can be mountain and forest”. Wen Zhengming (1470 – 1559)

A perfect miniature of a traditional Chinese landscape painting, this Garden encapsulates the essence of nature. It was built to take you on a journey to a greater understanding of history, culture, heritage, and tradition.

Its origins come from a desire to celebrate the city’s Chinese heritage and its valuable sister city relationship with Shanghai.

If you think one visit is enough, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. The Garden changes with the seasons and vistas and hidden corners appear unexpectedly so you see something different every time you visit.

Come and relax, drink tea, bring a picnic, try some puzzles and games or simply wander and soak up the tranquility of the only truly authentic Chinese Scholar’s Garden in the Southern Hemisphere.”

Royal Albatross, Taiaroa Head, Royal Albatross Centre, Dunedin, New Zealand

Very rough video of trip onboard the Monarch to cruise Otago Harbor and see the Royal Albatross. This was taken from a rocking boat, but I think there are a few shots worthy of viewing, especially if you haven’t seen an albatross before.
