Back on SH83 at Duntroon is the Vanished World Centre, with small but interesting displays of 25-million-year-old fossils, including NZ’s shark-toothed dolphins and giant penguins. There’s also a selection of books on geology, history and talking lions. If you’re really into fossils and geology, pick up a copy of the Vanished World Fossil Trail map outlining 20 different locations around North Otago.
Kurow Heritage & Information Centre has an interesting local museum, including a mini-shrine to local boy Richie McCaw, captain of the mighty All Blacks when they won the Rugby World Cup in 2011.
