Activities & attractions Dunedin
Chipmunks Playland Dunedin
Welcome to Chipmunks, the indoor children’s adventure playground and café. Chipmunks is the ultimate place for children up to 11 years to go for entertainment and educational purposes. Our playland primarily consists of specialised play equipment of an extremely high standard, with protective matting and padding. We also have mazes, inflatable slides, flying fox, play stations, ball pools and a separate area for under 3s.
Welcome to Penguin Place, home of the Yellow-Eyed Penguin Conservation Reserve. Every penguin here has a personality: each is banded with a metal ring around the right flipper and they all have names. Each is thus known to us, each is protected individually and each life story is recorded. In the colony, the penguins are offered nest boxes that provide them with shelter, shade and the privacy they require for successful breeding, while allowing them to come and go to and from the ocean, enjoying a natural habitat.
Bowl Line Ten Pin Bowling
We provide 18 lanes of fun family entertainment for the young and the young at heart. All lanes have automatic bumpers for the young and those that are bowling challenged so no more gutter balls! We also provide lighter weight bowling balls to suit children, fully automated scoring, cafe and licensed bar and toilets on-site. Plenty of parking - open from 11.30am till late - an ideal outing the whole family can enjoy!
