Dunedin & Otago

Dunedin was founded by the Free Church of Scotland in the 1840’s and is located under several hills at the head of a long twisting harbour. The city has a distinctive Scottish flavour with prominent street names from Edinburgh and a statue of the famous Scottish poet Robbie Burns located in the city centre.

Why visit Dunedin & Otago ?

  • Visit Larnach Castle, built in 1871 and restored to its original Victorian Grandeur
  • Go Penguin spotting on the Otago Peninsula
  • Take the Taieri Gorge Railway through the picturesque Central Otago Hinterland
  • Explore Dunedin’s vibrant street art trail

Don’t miss a drive up the Otago Peninsula – the views are endless and the beaches are beautifully rugged. Nestled at the foot of Taiaroa Head is the Royal Albatross Centre, the only place in the world on the mainland where you can view Northern Royal Albatross in their natural habitat. On Dunedin’s doorstep you will also find incredible wildlife including the world’s rarest penguin colonies.
