Just a short distance from the city center, Dunedin Botanic Garden serves as a quiet retreat for locals and visitors alike.

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.
