Perhaps there wouldn't be quite so many bad dolphin tattoos and dancing penguin films if more people stopped in Duntroon to check out this small but interesting volunteer-run centre. Once you see the 25-million-year-old fossils of shark-toothed dolphins and giant penguins, they suddenly don't seem so cute.

Pick up a copy of the Vanished World Trail map ($6.50) outlining 20 different interesting geological locations around the Waitaki Valley and North Otago coast.
