Dunedin & Otago

Visit Dunedin

Introduction

The south-eastern corner of the South Island is perhaps the least explored part of the country. Its largest settlement is Dunedin, an attractive and welcoming place with strong Scottish roots.

The nearby Otago Peninsula is home to rare marine species and seabirds, some of which are found in greater numbers here than anywhere else in the world.
