Holidays in Dunedin

As you walk through the city streets, you'll be rubbing shoulders with roughly 110,000 people.

It is located 620 kilometres southwest of the country's capital, Wellington, and 12 kilometres southwest of Port Chalmers.

After a few family-friendly activities? Spoil the kids with a trip to Penguin Place and Royal Albatross Centre. Yellow-Eyed Penguin Conservation Reserve is another fun-filled attraction that will put a smile on everyone's faces!

Dive right into an entrancing underwater world that's overflowing with marine life at NZ Marine Studies Centre and Aquarium. Actually, on second thoughts, it might be better to stay on dry ground. Some of these slimy critters aren't to be meddled with!

The Speight's Brewery is the place to be if sipping on a beer is your favourite way to round off the day. See if there are any tours on or simply kick back and enjoy their original creations and flavours.

Start a big night out with some table games and bright, sparkling lights at the Dunedin Casino. It's the ideal place to get the good times rolling!

Spend some hours exploring the Dunedin Botanic Garden and the Glenfalloch Woodland Garden, where you will find a wide variety of local flora.

An outing to the seaside is a nice antidote to the frenzy of the city, so why not spend a little time inhaling the deliciously salty air at St. Clair Beach or Brighton Beach? Also consider going for a leisurely walk along Boulder Beach and Tomahak Beach.

You probably know about its best shopping centres and squares, but don't forget that Dunedin has some excellent nature reserves too. Taieri Gorge and Signal Hill are two to consider. Two additional areas to have a look at are Moeraki Boulders and Mount Cargill.

If the weather isn't great, check for tours and events at the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame and Temple Gallery. Browse the exhibits and take five in the quiet surrounds.

Take in the imaginative works hosted in the gallery spaces of the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. If you find something that captures your eye, be sure to find out about the artist.

If you like to think of yourself as a bit of a history freak, immerse yourself in the intriguing exhibits that bring to life people, places and events of the past at the Otago Museum. The Toitu Otago Settlers Museum and the Port Chalmers Museum are also passionate about relaying the story of the region's rich and diverse background.

A visit to Dunedin certainly delivers when it comes to historical sights. You're sure to get a better understanding of this destination's past at Olveston and the University of Otago. If that doesn't satisfy your inner history nerd, also check out Dunedin Town Hall and The Fletcher House.

Pay a visit to Historic Fort Taiaroa and discover the significance of this former stronghold. Built to withstand enemy attack, it's not difficult to imagine the tumultuous events that took place on the ground you're standing!

The robust stone walls and sprawling grounds at Larnach Castle are what folk tales are made from. Unleash your inner king with a trip to this formidable structure.

Want to add a spiritual aspect to your escape? Take a look around St. Paul's Cathedral and First Church of Otago. You can gain an even deeper look into the city's beliefs at Holy Trinity Church and Catholic Church.

If you are the sort of person who likes to visit lesser-known sights, Baldwin Street will catch your eye. The Hocken Library might also appeal.
