Garden
Just a short distance from the city center, Dunedin Botanic Garden serves as a quiet retreat for locals and visitors alike. New Zealand's oldest botanic garden, it encompasses a number of elegant turn-of-the-century structures, including a fountain from 1890 and iron gates from 1907. The popular Edwardian conservatory features a tropical house, subtropical collection, and cacti and succulents display. Take your time strolling through the garden's winding paths to reveal an herb garden, aviary, and over 100 different species of rhododendrons. Those traveling with kids won't want to miss the duck pond and children's playground.
