macandrew bay

A suburb of Dunedin on the Otago Peninsula. The road to Macandrew Bay was built in the 19th century with the help of prison labour, including Māori prisoners from Parihaka. A Māori name for the bay is Te Rotopāteke (bay of the brown duck). Craft shops and newer buildings sit alongside an old-style dairy (convenience store). The nearby Glenfalloch woodland gardens, with flowers and plants from all over the world, were developed by Philip Baring in the early 20th century.

Meaning of place name
Named after James Macandrew, a notable figure in the early days of Dunedin. During his life he lived in the bay that is named after him, in a house called Colinswood - a name appropriated for an area on the outskirts of the bay.
