Dunedin: tourist information
Dunedin is a great place to live for people of all ages and lifestyle. Situated on the south eastern coast of New Zealand’s South Island, capital of the Otago Region, a city by the sea, surrounded by beautiful lofty hills, gracious distinguished buildings and white sandy beaches is Dunedin – a city to intrigue and enchant.
It has everything from the ultimate geography for outdoor recreations, a vibrant nightlife with top class entertainment/theatre/music/restaurants/arts. Dunedin combines magnificent, historical architecture, modern industry and business with dramatic scenery and wildlife reserves. It is a University City with strong Scottish heritage.
Its striking bush covered hills and valleys at the head of a long natural harbour attracted Maori settlers as long as four centuries ago. In 1848 Scottish settlers established a town there, bestowing upon it the ancient name of Edinburgh. Not long after the settlers’ arrival gold was discovered in Otago and the then small town of Dunedin become the commercial capital of New Zealand and the centre for the nations wealth.
Today, Dunedin is foremost a University City with some 10% of its (approximately) 115,000 population attending the tertiary institutions.
