Dunedin is undoubtedly different. A uniquely elegant city... from the splendid hill and harbour setting to many of the nation's finest Victorian and Edwardian buildings to its world-renowned wildlife.
Dunedin has a population of approximately 120,000.
Located at the head of Otago Harbour on the lower east coast of the South Island, Dunedin is loved for its easy access to beaches, bush and hills. It is a comfortable three hours from Dunedin to the alpine resort of Queenstown.
While the Maori were trading in the region in the 18th century the history of the European settlement dates back to 1848 with the arrival of predominantly Scottish setters. Dunedin still fiercely protects its proud heritage. Today the city has earned the enviable reputation as New Zealand's premier centre of learning; the University of Otago is world renowned for teaching and research.
Intriguing. Entertaining. Welcoming. Dunedin is all this, and more.
