Purakaunui Falls in full flood

Rained off for the day in Dunedin while we wait to head to the Elton John concert, what better way to make the most of the bad weather than go waterfall chasing.

We decided to head South and catch our favourite waterfall, the delightful Purakaunui Falls, a photographers paradise. The sheer power of the water was frightening. We were pleased to catch a few photos on out waterproof GoPro, watch in amazement for a while then quickly get back to Dunedin before any State Highways closed due to flooding. What an amazing sight, only topped by the Elton John Concert tonight. Go Elton!

Also a photo we took in January 2019. What a difference!

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
