Dunedin Holidays

Dunedin is an ideal destination for anyone wanting to have a bit of a breather, spend some time with loved ones or simply have a change of scenery.

Dunedin Holidays

Roughly 110 000 people call this locality home.

You'll find this destination roughly 620 kilometres to the southwest of Wellington. It's also about 12 kilometres to the southwest of Port Chalmers.

When exploring Dunedin, there is no doubt you will satisfy the kids with the array of family activities available. Penguin Place and Royal Albatross Centre are some of the most popular picks around. Another option worth checking out is Yellow-Eyed Penguin Conservation Reserve.

The sea is home to millions of species, so you and your children had better start introducing yourselves. Make your way to NZ Marine Studies Centre and Aquarium to rub shoulders with some of the familiar, and the not so familiar, marine species of our big blue planet.

If you are a fan of a refreshing beer, join a tour of the Speight's Brewery and have a look at where this ancient beverage is made.

The fast-paced action never stops at the Dunedin Casino. Whether blackjack's your game or you just come for the riveting atmosphere, you're sure to have a blast.

Dunedin hosts one or two beautiful botanical collections that those with green fingers are going to want to explore. Kick off with an explorative walk through the Dunedin Botanic Garden, then head to the Glenfalloch Woodland Garden to discover the interesting scenery.

If you just love watching the ebb-and-flow of the tides, check out the spectacular beaches here. St. Clair Beach and Brighton Beach are ideal places to have a picnic or challenge the locals to a game of cricket. If you want something a bit different, Boulder Beach and Tomahak Beach are two other popular spots nearby.

Don't miss out on making a trip to at least one of the local nature reserves and parks. Plan a trip to Taieri Gorge or Signal Hill, two recommended ones. Staying some extra time? Then consider Moeraki Boulders and Mount Cargill too.

Every museum, whether it's well-established or more niche, has its own particular charms. Dunedin's exhibit spaces are certainly no exception. Keen to jump on a guided tour? Make sure you check the calander at the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame and Temple Gallery.

Keen to break into the art world? Awaken your senses as you stroll through the fantastic collection of works at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.

Satisfy your inner history buff with a stop off at one of the fascinating museums. You'll be an expert on the region after visiting the Otago Museum, the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum and the Port Chalmers Museum.

This holiday destination has changed a great deal since the days of old, but there's still a tonne of history throughout the city. Journey back in time at Olveston and the University of Otago. Then end your tour with a visit to Dunedin Town Hall or The Fletcher House.

If you would enjoy a little taste of history and you're a strategic thinker, Historic Fort Taiaroa is probably right up your alley. In days long past, it was this defensive structure that kept the locals safe.

Going to Larnach Castle and exploring all its historic rooms and halls is a wonderful activity for anyone wanting to learn about the region's interesting history.

You need not be a religious fanatic to love the eclectic mix of divine sites scattered around this area. St. Paul's Cathedral and First Church of Otago are the most visited of these venerable structures, with Holy Trinity Church and Catholic Church following close behind.

If you're left with an itinerary that's a little light, and you've already visited pretty much all of the most popular landmarks and tourist spots, don't worry, there's still plenty to do. Think about visiting the more modest attractions, such as the Hocken Library.
