About this track

Built in 1865, the Sandymount Lime Kilns provide a fascinating diversion and an example of one of the best preserved lime kilns in the country. A short walk across farmland will bring you to the base of the kilns and provide excellent photo opportunities of the kiln and Harbour Cone in the distance.

Getting there

From Dunedin, travel along Highcliff Road and turn right down Sandymount Road. The Lime Kilns will appear on your left. There are pull over bays along Sandymount Road where you can park.
