We stayed in Gore one night between a visit to the Otago Peninsula and an overnight cruise in Doubtful Sound. This allowed us to split the driving into two chunks of 2 hours rather than a four hour stretch on the morning of our cruise. The one down side was that we chose to take an early tour of the Albatross colony in order to get to Gore early enough for dinner. As a result, there was not much wind at that time and the Albatross were not flying. Regardless, we arrived around 6:30pm and our hosts made us feel very welcome in their very nice modern home. We had a little time before dinner, so our hosts recommended a walk about the Dolamore Park, which was a pleasant walk as we were all alone on the trail. Late at night, we enjoyed a glass of wine outside as we watched the moonless southern sky, beautiful without the city lights. The next morning, breakfast was good and plentiful. I don't expect Gore gets much tourist destination traffic, but this was a nice stop along the way.
