Dunedin's a great city to visit. The Forsyth Barr covered stadium is great for sporting events or concerts, the Otago Museum is very good and great for young children, the beaches are great (if often a little cold!), there are lots of nature sightseeing opportunities, there are good restaurants, fashion shops and the people are very freiendly.
Always very friendly people, easy access to events, shopping accommodation within walking distances. It would be great to see the waterfront developed with cafes, small shops similar to St Clair and Wgtn waterfront.
We found one cafe with beautiful harbour views, would like to see the old wharf area upgraded, enhanced and celebrated.
Dunedin, New Zealand's oldest city, a university city of Scottish heritage, possesses a unique combination of cultural riches, fine architecture and world-famous wildlife reserves on the Otago Peninsula.
This is one of the great place to visit in South Island.
We Love the huge differences and dynamics in culture of Dunedin. The shopping is always great. Just a fantastic place to visit and experience the shopping, culture, food and history of the region.
Both interesting and relaxing. Keep it up Dunedin. Love It!!
A nice town, bigger than originally thought and could have stayed an extra night A must see is Natures Wonders on the otago peninsula - great views and get to meet the seals up close and personal
A lot of old colonial buildings in the centre of the city. Steam trains leave from the railway. The Otago peninsula is a short drive away with albatross, penguins and seals.
We loved seeing the yellow-eyed penguin and the little blue penguins. I would highly recommend visiting the Albatross center and taking the evening blue penguin watch/tour.
Dunedin is a beautiful city and the landscape surrounding the area is incredible (similar to most of NZ)
We were just driving through the town, but had some good food while we were there. Definitely a student own which has fostered 'hypster' like cafes serving great food.
We toured many cities in New Zealand and Dunedin is a city that cannot be missd. Very pretty and full of various kinds of activities catering to different interests.
Dunedin is a beautiful city. The city buildings and houses have classic architecture. Our family loved the Cadbury factory tour! The Otago museum was worth a visit.
Lanarch Castle and gardens were beautiful - lunch in the ballroom was grand, delicious and good value. Visiting the Otago Peninsula is a must - seeing Royal Albatross chicks and penguins coming up the beach at twilight was amazing. Dunedin is definitely worth a visit.
It is a nice city for stop over between ChristChurch and Queenstown.One day stopover i not enough,at least 2 days so you can visit the castle and the pennisula.
It is well located to allow easy access to water activities, eco activities *(kiwis and albatross), beaches, the business hubs, shopping and universities.
Historic homesteads add an air of culture and the people are very friendly. It is a microcosm of the past and the future, a place rather hidden behind other more 'touristy' places, but one well worth living and investing in.
An interesting, historical city with very beautiful buildings. The castle is fascinating, as is the railway station; and the train trip is a must.
Dunedin is a beautiful place to visit with its historic buildings and scenic views. The coastal road to the Otago Peninsula has picturebook views.
Going up the hill to Lanrch's castle also has stunning views.The Otago Uni has among the most beatutiful buildings I have seen.Need at least 3 nights to do justice. Only minus point is that the tourist attractions - Sports Hall of Fame, Cadbury's Factory,Cruises and Museum all close by 5pm.
Dunedin's wildlife is true great due to the presence of the Royal Albertros. It was great to see such a large bird flying gracefully in the sky.
A very clean city. Saturday markets could be expanded to show more local produce etc. Could give notice to all attractions at the markets.
Reasonable food .
We had a very short stay and would love to have stayed longer. The buildings were beautiful, easy walking around the city, loved the Museum.
You could spend a fortune in the Scottish Shop and be happy. There are a variety of hotels in the central city, great to be so close to everything. Will go back for sure.
Lots of restaurants to try around the Octagon and George St. Great mix of history, natural features and quaint/quirky NZ phenomena.
We have been there 2 times now and have enjoyed each time. Although both times we were only visiting briefly, passing through.
We ate at Speights Ale brewery pub which was good, nice atmosphere and decoration. The train station is an architectural historical marvel and icon for the place, a must see. Last time we took a train ride up the scenic Taieri gorge well worth it beautiful diverse countryside enjoyed trip. We also visited Larnach castle for a day trip liked the interior, the views and beautiful gardens. We also visited the albatross colony however didn't see any, but saw one penguin in the water, the others were out for the day. The drive was spectacular. Had a coffee/cake at Guilty by confection cafe a quaint gift shop with collectibles worth having a look it's close to the railway station.
City hub with a lot of attraction places to visit. Eg. The Octagon, first church, railway station, museum, penguin & sea lion
Very nice buildings, like Otago University, Olivestone House and Lanarch Castle. People are very friendly.
A very clean and orderly city. Easy access to public transport. The restaurants provide variedcuisine
