Local Attractions

Dunedin is an endearing city of classical architecture, ‘Scottish Charm’ and a city that prides itself on being New Zealand’s centre for learning, heritage, arts and culture. It is also the commercial hub of the Otago region and the gateway to the diverse wildlife of the Otago Peninsula including stunning coastal beauty.

The city’s population is 126,000 during term time, when almost one fifth of residents are students. The community embraces and celebrates its cultural diversity, with strong historical ties to the Chinese community and Dunedin’s sister city Edinburgh.
