In and around Dunedin

Historic Dunedin is a great place to visit if you love to celebrate heritage.

For example, you could head over to the Olveston Historic Home, widely considered to be the finest example in New Zealand. It is furnished with a variety of artworks, antiques and artefacts and little has changed here since this building was originally built in 1905.

You can also find a variety of valuable art collections at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and may be able to pick up some examples of local artistry to take home with you.

Alternatively, head over to Larnach Castle, New Zealand’s only authentic castle that sits within its own, beautifully kept grounds. Here you will get a magnificent view of nearby Otago Harbour.

Dive back in time even more at the Otago Museum, where you will find a fantastic collection of exhibits celebrating science, history, culture and archaeology. This is one of the largest and oldest museums in all of New Zealand.

Once you’ve finished your journey into the past you may want some fresh air and where better to enjoy the outdoor air than along the Otago Central Rail Trail. Rent a bicycle and explore some of the historic tunnels and viaducts through the countryside around Dunedin.

A visit to Dunedin would not be complete without a trip on the water, after all. Hop aboard a cruise and see how many creatures you can spot. The area is famous for its cormorants, seals, albatross and blue penguins. The more adventurous might want to schedule a wildlife adventure aboard a unique eight-wheel amphibious vehicle.

If you want to stay in or around Dunedin itself, you can join other art enthusiasts and explore the Dunedin Street Art Trail. A variety of tours are available, and you will be able to see how local and national artists have worked to turn the city of Dunedin into a giant canvas.

All of this walking may have left you with a thirst and to take care of this, you can head over to the Emerson craft brewery. They will give you a tour of the facility and offer some of their best brews for you to sample.

Finally, pick up some mementos to take home. You can browse through the designer boutiques dotted throughout Dunedin, where you can find locally made jewellery, giftware and other items inspired by the community.
