Historic architecture and eco-adventures await you in Dunedin. Watch the penguins surf into the beach after a successful day’s fishing.
The city of Dunedin was built with the riches of the gold rush, consequently it has one of the best collections of Edwardian and Victorian architecture in the southern hemisphere. Gothic church spires, ornate mansions, swathes of native forest and magnificent views of the harbour make Dunedin very memorable. It is also the first and only city in New Zealand to be named a UNESCO Creative City of Literature - home to some of New Zealand’s most celebrated writers including Janet Frame and poets Charles Brasch and Thomas Bracken - the author of our national anthem.
Around the city you can visit historic homes, dip into the chocolate factory and browse the excellent museums. The resident student population keeps Dunedin lively.
Take a drive along Otago Peninsula to discover Larnach Castle and a choice of wildlife encounters – there are penguin, albatross and seal colonies here.
Functional facts: Approx. population 119,000, i-SITE Visitor Centre, domestic and international airport.
