09.30 Collected form your hotel / motel accommodation.
Arrive at Olveston House for a fully guided tour of this stately home and its treasures. Olveston was built for Dunedin businessman, collector and philanthropist David Theomin and his family. Designed by acclaimed English architect Sir Ernest George, Olveston was built as a family home furnished with fine art, furniture and artefacts purchased from all around the world. Intended for future generations of Theomin’s to enjoy, this was not to be the case as both the Theomin children died without heirs and the house and the original contents were gifted to the City of Dunedin. Olveston is an authentic and original historic home depicting the life of a wealthy merchant family in the early part of the twentieth century.
From Olveston House, set off on a full-commentary coach tour round the outskirts of the city taking in the ‘dress circle’ of Dunedin’s original homes of the wealthy settlers, to a lookout overlooking the city, up the world’s steepest street, through the University campus, out to the Peninsula high road for spectacular harbour, rural and ocean views, lastly down to the St Clair beach esplanade.
Arrive at the Cadbury`s Chocolate Factory. Here you will enjoy the new Cadbury`s World Experience, a one hour tour that includes explanation of the chocolate making process, liquid chocolate tasting, tempering demonstration, chocolate fall and sampling along the way of course! Just make sure you allowed room and didn’t over-indulge at breakfast.
