Explore the Beauty of Dunedin

On the south-eastern coast of the South Island, Dunedin is one of the largest cities in New Zealand. The city enjoys a proud Scottish heritage hinted by the fact that the Dunedin is actually the Scottish Gaelic word for Edinburgh. As well as an inherited love of rugby, there’s even Larnach Castle nearby, the only castle in the country.

As with much of New Zealand, you’re never far from pristine natural beauty. Dunedin has a number of excellent tramping trails – ‘tramping’ being New Zealand’s term for hiking – and also the world’s only mainland albatross breeding colony.

The city itself is one of New Zealand’s prettiest. The combination of wonderful Edwardian and Victorian architecture blends beautifully with the landscape. And the rather grand railway station is worth a visit by itself.

But Dunedin is more than just a beauty spot – this is a vibrant student city with a pulse. You’ll find an excellent range of restaurants, bars and cafés, and it’s well worth taking a tour of Speight’s Brewery and the Cadbury chocolate factory.

Why visit Dunedin?

  • Go ‘tramping’ on the hiking trails nearby – the stunning scenery makes it very worthwhile
  • Tour the fantastic Speight’s Brewery and learn a little about the south’s favourite beer
  • More than a century old, the grand Dunedin Railway Station is a superb photo opportunity
  • Head to the beach for swimming or surfing
  • Want something quirky? Dunedin is home to steepest street in the world – it’s a ten minute walk to the top
