Set between rolling hills and rugged coastline, Dunedin is popular for its unique combination of a bustling university, architectural heritage and exotic wildlife.
Dunedin is centred in the region of Otago, well known as a natural playground and for the quieter pleasures of wildlife, enchanting scenery and local cuisine.
Dunedin is recognised as one of the best-preserved sites of Edwardian and Victorian architecture in the southern hemisphere. Taiaroa head, just 45 minutes from the city centre, is the only place in the world where the giant Royal Albatross breeding grounds can be seen.
Colonies of seals and New Zealand sea lions are found around the harbour and the world’s rarest penguin, the yellow-eyed, can also be seen on nearby beaches. Modern culture is thriving in Dunedin with theatres, art galleries, cafes restaurants and bars scattered throughout the city.
