Named after the old Gaelic for Edinburgh, Dunedin is Otago's largest city and boasts a stunning harbour, native wildlife and a proud Scottish heritage. During the gold fever days of the 1860s, Dunedin was New Zealand's main centre, and it's now a treasure trove of Victorian and Edwardian architecture. You can visit 24 listed buildings, including the stately mansion of Olveston, Larnach Castle, and the elegant Dunedin Railway Station. Dunedin's colourful goldmining legacy is captured at the Otago Settlers Museum, or head to the Railway Station and enjoy the delightful train trip through the historic goldmining region of Taieri Gorge.
Dunedin also lays claim to the world's steepest road, Baldwin Street, and the country's oldest university, the University of Otago, founded in 1869. Today, Dunedin's lively student scene contributes to the city's vibrant atmosphere. Beyond the Dunedin area are the natural wonders of the Otago Peninsula and the Catlins Coast - magnificent wilderness areas where you can see gannets, albatross, sea lions and penguins up close in their natural habitat. The beautiful Southern Scenic Route links Dunedin with Invercargill, in Southland.
