Dunedin Tourism


Introduction
Distinctly Scottish in feel, with stone buildings and Victorian houses, this town of 113,000 lies on the southeast coast of South Island. Dunedin has New Zealand's only castle (Larnach Castle), which overlooks Otago Harbor. Other diversions include guided tours through the Speights Brewery, Wilson's whiskey distillery, the Cadbury Chocolate factory, the 130-year-old Botanical Gardens and Olveston House (home of a wealthy turn-of-the-century merchant). Nature lovers will enjoy the nearby Otago Peninsula and its royal albatross colony. (The birds live 60 years, have wingspans of up to 12 feet and travel more than 120,000 miles a year—viewing season is late November to late August.) The area is also the home of the yellow-eyed penguin—look for a place called McGrouther's Farm

Key Attractions of Dunedin

Larnach Castle
High among the rolling hills of the Peninsula is , the Larnach Castle the grand home of an early politician. Construction of the castle began in 1871 and was completed five years later. Larnach Castle and its historic-style garden can be reached via the high road (Highcliff Road) along the Peninsula's ridge. From here, views out to sea and back towards the city emphasise the singular beauty of Dunedin and its jewel-like harbour.

Otago Harbour
Cruising on the Otago Harbour is a wonderful experience. Organised harbour cruises offer excellent viewing of this marine habitat. Monarch wildlife Cruises and tour offer the opportunity to view albatross, fur seals, penguins, nesting birds, dolphins, geological features and information regarding the cultural heritage of Dunedin's beautiful harbour.

Baldwin Street
The world's steepest street is what you will find at Baldwin Street. The annual Baldwin Street Gutbuster is part of our Dunedin Summer Festival program. Challenge yourself and test your fitness level while you spare a thought for the folks who live at the top of the world's steepest street.

The other attractions include Otago Museum and Discovery World ,renowned for its Maori and Pacific Island collections and its natural history displays. Discovery World Otago Museum is a hands on science centre, with many interactive exhibits and programmes. Olveston offers a fascinating glimpse of the city's prosperous past., Olveston is an antique lovers delight, as it is home to a vast collection of paintings, furniture and objects d'art. Yellow-eyed Penguins , found on the Otago Peninsula are colonies of the world's shyest penguin, the Yellow-eyed Penguin, sharing secluded beaches with New Zealand Fur Seals.

Rich fauna of Dunedin
Seals, albatross, penguins - an abundance of marine life, birds and insects, and so close to the metropolitan city of Dunedin, but able to be watched and admired - a natural feast amidst a landscape so diverse it encompasses green valleys, wide green plains, fast flowing rivers, surf beaches, bush-covered hills, sheltered bays and mountain ranges. Through having at hand such rare and special wildlife as Royal albatrosses, Yellow-eyed penguins and Hooker's sealions, Dunedin proclaims itself the wildlife capital of New Zealand. The boast is not without supporting evidence. The astonishing thing about the nature of Dunedin is its diversity. What's more, it's all within city limits.

Shopping
Dunedin offers all the facilities one would expect within a modern, thriving city, without the traffic jams and parking problems! All banks, insurance companies, government agencies, service centres and social agencies charities are represented in Dunedin. There are some unique speciality shops such as antique dealers, handmade homeware retailers, galleries, exhibition spaces, artists workshops and clothing designer showrooms and you truly have a cosmopolitan, vibrant mix of creativity on show to all those who call Dunedin home.

The main city shopping area is centred around the Octagon , Lower Stuart Street, Princes Street, George Street and St Andrews. Shopping in Dunedin is relaxed and unhurried. There is a mix of national stores and highly individual local stores. Hours vary, but as a guide the following can be used.

Rich Cultural Pursuit
Essentially it is this richness of environment and the warmth of the people that set Dunedin apart from other cities. Dunedin is an exciting city made up of a diversity of cultures. The Maori Settlement of the Dunedin area had occurred by the 14th Century. There is a diversity within the Maori arts sector, with a number of Maori carvers and weavers resident within the City. A number of small galleries within the city offer access to their work. A professional theatre collective has arisen within the last few years. Although the Pacific Island population within Dunedin is small, it is well established and very active within the cultural sector.
