Often referred to as the ‘Edinburgh of the South’, Dunedin, in New Zealand’s South Island, is one of the best-preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the southern hemisphere. It may be New Zealand’s oldest city, but Dunedin captures a ‘young’ vibe, thanks to its student population and commitment to the arts.

Abundant wildlife, heritage buildings, amazing street art, a fab café scene, and extraordinary culinary delights are just a few of Dunedin’s attractions. Its people are friendly and down-to-earth - we love any opportunity to show-off our city. Dunedin is easy to get around - recreational, cultural and shopping venues are within easy reach. Or you may wish to venture further afield to check out some of the amazing city, coastal or rural views within the city limits.

Be sure to check out the unique wildlife of the Otago Peninsula, visit our beaches, walk to the top of the world’s steepest street or pop into one of our breweries and say hi to the locals. Our scenic gardens, architecture, bush tracks and covered stadium offer something for everyone. ‘It’s all right here’ - and so much more, besides.

Dunedin is the perfect stopover on your way to Central Otago, Queenstown or Southland, but be sure to stay a while, or you may miss something magical!

Dunedin delights in so many ways – you’ll love it here. We do!
