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.
