Local Area

The city of Dunedin, on New Zealand’s South Island, was founded by Scottish settlers in 1848. Its rich Scottish heritage is still evident today – for starters, Dunedin was named after Edinburgh. Traditions such as Burns Nights are observed by locals, although there’s plenty of Kiwi culture to be experienced, too. Located on the Otago Peninsula, the city’s magnificent natural surroundings will have you snapping pics left, right and centre. Local wildlife such as yellow-eyed penguins, sea lions and albatrosses can be spotted on a vast array of hiking and biking trails along the coastline. You can also kick back and relax on one of the region’s sublime sandy beaches. Back in the city, there’s a wide variety of attractions to explore. Glimpse into Dunedin’s rich history at Larnach Castle on a guided tour of the historic mansion and gardens. Or stretch your legs up Baldwin Street, the world’s steepest road, before marvelling at the tranquil beauty of Lan Yuan, Dunedin Chinese Garden.
