Dunedin

Edinburgh of the South

With its history proudly stemming from the Scottish settlers who came here during the colonial era, Dunedin's streets are lined with well-preserved examples of Victorian and Edwardian architecture, while a new culture of nightlife and fine dining takes hold around them. Stunning views of the coastline abound, along with chances to spot some of the world's rarest wildlife, such as the northern royal albatross and the yellow-eyed penguin. Take a bike tour of Dunedin proper before heading out into the varied landscape, or soak up your surroundings on a leisurely walk. The wildlife and history of the "Edinburgh of the South" is all around you, however you wish to take it in. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your New Zealand trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Where to stay in Dunedin

Many of the accommodations in Dunedin are based around the central George Street thoroughfare, including a wide range of hotels and hostels. Rental apartments represent a fine way to stay in Dunedin, and may appeal more to those wanting to stay on the move or take in the town and the surrounding landscape at their own pace. Campsites situated to the north and east of the town center give you more economical options, while motels cluster along the main highways, convenient if you're coming by car.
