Described as the Edinburgh of the south, Dunedin sits at the head of the Otago Penisula and on the Otago Harbour. The city found fame and developed during the gold rush in the mid 1850's with immigrants from around the world heading to the region. Nowadays it is a thriving university town with an average age of population at 26. Dunedin is a beautiful city with heritage Victorian architecture and rolling landscapes. The Otago Farmers Market is a must do activity, while both Cadburys and Speights offer tours of their factories. The dining scene gets better and better each year with the city and surrounding towns recognized nationally for some of the dining experiences on offer. Fleur's Place in Moeraki has international acclaim for owner Fleur's passion for her food and local produce. As you would imagine with a university city, there is no shortage of bars and the city boasts fun and funky bars and pubs. The coffee scene is a popular in Dunedin as the rest of the country and its worth doing your research to find out where people are raving about for a great flat white or long black. We love Pier 24 at St Clair Beach and Scotia which gives you a taste of Scotland, the other side of the world! Look out for local cheese, beer and salamis for a real taste of this amazing city.
