Visitors to Dunedin will find an historic university town that stretches around a sheltered harbour. An endearing city of fine, unspoiled Edwardian and Victorian architecture, Dunedin prides itself on being New Zealand’s centre for learning, heritage, arts and culture and is renowned for being one of the world’s great small cities.
A sister city to both Edinburgh and Shanghai, Dunedin is the commercial hub of the Otago region and home of the University of Otago. The vibrant city centre is compact, with restaurants, cafes, hotels and accommodation within walking distance and the city rise has many stunning views.
Immerse yourself in Dunedin’s cultural and arts scene at the award winning Toitu Otago Settlers Museum, explore the city’s early beginnings and exciting future.
The nearby Otago Peninsula is home to unique wildlife including Yellow-eyed penguins, the only mainland breeding colony of the Royal albatross in the world, rare New Zealand sea lions.
The impressive Scottish baronial-style Larnach Castle is also set high above the harbour out on the Peninsula, with its 14 hectare garden and grounds recognised as a Garden of International Significance.
