Dunedin

Known as the Edinburgh of New Zealand, Dunedin was founded by Scottish settlers in 1848 and is the second largest city in the South Island. This historic South Island city is surrounded by beautiful Otago Harbour and is home to some of the best-preserved Victorian and Edwardian architecture in the Southern Hemisphere.

Today Dunedin is a bustling university city with a strong arts and culture presence. Dunedin hosts several touring ballet and dance groups as well as choir and musical groups, sporting teams, theatre companies and has also recently been designated as a UNESCO Creative City of Literature.
