Surrounded by dramatic bush-covered hills and valleys at the head of the long Otago Peninsula is Dunedin, New Zealand’s first City. One of the best-preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere, it wears its Scottish heritage with pride.
Dunedin is the main centre of Otago, a region recognized for its spectacular scenery and the Otago Peninsula is internationally renowned as the ‘Wildlife Capital of New Zealand’.
On Dunedin’s doorstep you will find incredible wildlife including the world’s rarest penguins and the world’s only mainland breeding colony of Royal Albatross.
Along the stunning sandy beaches around Dunedin you will also likely find New Zealand fur seals, Hooker Sea Lions and the occasional Sea Elephant.
