Dunedin, New Zealand

Dunedin city captivates and enchants, it is a city in which to linger and explore. A city rich in heritage and architecture that leaves lasting memories for its visitors.

Once the centre of European commerce and culture in New Zealand, Dunedin retains an elegant grandeur often missing from larger cities in New Zealand and combines it with the vibrancy of youth.

Abundant Victorian and Edwardian architecture is found in this beautiful city. These elegant buildings often house hotels, restaurants, and conference venues, and include New Zealand’s only castle, Larnach Castle. These heritage buildings all bear testimony to the wealth that flowed into Dunedin during the gold rush period, 1860-1880.

A compact city with a population of 122,000 (including a student population of 23,000) Dunedin is located on the southeast coast of the South Island of New Zealand. It is a safe and compact city with most hotels and restaurants being within easy walking distance of the city centre, ‘The Octagon’.

Dunedin is nestled in tree-clad hills at the head of the Otago Peninsula which is home to some of the world’s rarest wildlife.

Dunedin maintains a position of national importance as a major seat of learning with strong arts and cultural influencse. Stemming from the early Scottish immigrants bias regard for education, the University of Otago, New Zealand’s first, is recognized as a major force in education and enjoys an international reputation.
