Garden
Escape the bustle of the city at the tranquil Dunedin Chinese Garden, designed in the style of late Ming/early Qing gardens. Sheltered by 4 m (14 ft) walls, wander the paths from courtyard to courtyard, among immaculately landscaped vegetation that changes with the turning of the seasons. In addition to a large lake, the garden features a traditional tea house, serving Chinese teas, steamed buns, and dumplings. Puzzles and games offer mental diversion, while an audio guide explains the history of the Chinese in Dunedin. Plan your visit to Dunedin Chinese Garden and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Dunedin tour planner.

  • A very magical place. We had Green Tea on the Tea house and placed Chinese Checkers too lots of fun.
  • Beautiful spot but cost a small fortune. The food inside is expensive too and the calm gets ruined by passing freight trains
