Dunedin in the Otago region is considered one of New Zealand’s four major historic cities and is the largest city in the lower South Island. Orginially settled by Scottish settlers, Dunedin still retains a strong and proud Scottish heritage and even its name “Dunedin” is Gaelic for “Edenbourgh”. As New Zealand’s oldest city, Dunedin is famous for its stylish Victorian and Edwardian architecture as well its close proximity to marine based wildlife on the stunning Otago Peninsula. more
Some of Dunedin’s major highlights and attractions include the must see Royal Albatross Colony (the world’s only mainland albatross colony), Yellow Eyed Penguins (one of the world’s rarest penguins), Larnach Castle (New Zealand’s only Castle) and Baldwin Street (according to the Guinness World Book of Records, is the world’s steepest street). This friendly southern city is sure to be one of your most memorable highlights from New Zealand.
