Update on Royal Albatross web cam at Dunedin

Recommended Posts

The Royal Albatross web cam that also gives a great view of cruise ships entering the harbour at Taiaroa Heads , Dunedin , is having a massive makeover .

Dept of Conservation is working in conjunction with Corning University , New York and the new cam will join their system and be viewed by millions worldwide. 
The cam is down at the moment while the update takes place . Should go “live” shortly.

You might be able to see the ships coming up the channel after just leaving port and then crossing to the other side of the harbour before finally passing the camera at close range.
