Dunedin is a thriving university city with charming character. Set amidst a magical landscape Dunedin spreads around a sheltered harbour and is edged by the sea. The streets hum vibrantly with colour, culture, and history, while the beauty of nature can still be found - everywhere.
The Victorian and Edwardian spires and towers of notable, neo-Gothic buildings and stately homes punctuate Dunedin's cityscape. The city centre is compact, with a surprising array of kerbside cafes, high quality local craft, art, jewellery and fashion design outlets.
The city is renowned for its proximity to incredible wildlife. The Otago peninsula, a brief drive from the city centre, is home to a colony of the world's rarest penguins, the only mainland breeding colony of the royal albatross, rare New Zealand sea lions and the magnificent Larnach Castle.
There is a broad range of accommodation in Dunedin, as well as activities, places to eat, and entertainment for all ages.
