About Dunedin

On the Otago Peninsula, Dunedin's old-world charm contrasts with an artsy funky vibe. Street art abounds, from murals on buildings to yarn bombs wrapped around trees. Every corner has a Victorian or Edwardian heritage building. Sprinkled into Dunedin's unique history are imprints from a gold rush, Scottish farmers, and local tribes. Native forest, coastline, and rare wildlife will beckon the nature lover in you. This hidden gem features friendly, but reserved, locals and a vibrant student population.
