Royal Albatross Colony Dunedin

Otago Peninsula | SOUTH ISLAND

The Royal Albatross Colony at Taiaroa Head on the tip of the Peninsula, is the only mainland breeding colony of Albatross in the world.

THE ALBATROSS

 

To sight a soaring Albatross is unforgettable - a spectacle touched with a dignity and majesty. Held aloft on slim wings up to 3 metres (9'6') across, the great Albatross is capable of swooping speeds of at least 115kph+. It's pure ecstacy in the air, yet distinctly clumsy on the ground. You'll find the social and family life of the breeding colony fascinating. Chicks are fussed over by devoted parents, adolescents party like adolescents everywhere, courtships proceed with lots of kissing and cuddling, and 'marriage' is usually for life despite long separations at sea. The life of an Albatross is very long - one bird at Taiaroa, fondly known as 'Grandma', raised her last chick at age 62!
