Dunedin & Otago

The Dunedin & Otago region has much to offer to the discerning visitor, especially those interested in the wildlife, such as as albatrosses, fur seals, sea lions and penguins to be seen on Otago Peninsula.

Dunedin City is a friendly place, very Scottish in its own way, due to being the landing spot for large numbers of Scottish immigrants to the country. It’s a lively place when Otago University students are in town.

Inland, Central Otago offers up some of the country’s top wineries and the superb Otago Central Rail Trail, a 152km biking trail on what used to be a rail line.

Northern Otago features the enticing town of Oamaru with its Victorian precinct, blue penguin colony and nearby intriguing rock formations.


Dunedin Airport, 27km southwest of the city, is a regional hub and has flights and connections to all the main centres.
