Known as the Edinburgh of the south, the charming city of Dunedin is a wonderful vacation spot for visitors of all interests. Known primarily for its incredible wildlife attractions, the city itself is filled with interesting activities.
For food-lovers, take a tour of Cadbury World, and sample the famous milk chocolate as it journeys from cocoa bean to chocolate bar. If you don't have much of a sweet tooth, check out Speights Brewery, a city landmark that offers daily tours and tastings for those over 18. The city center, known as the Octagon, is bustling with shops and restaurants, and is always a lively place to visit.
For nature lovers, the Royal Albatross Centre, Dunedin Botanical Gardens, Orokunui EcoSanctuary, and Penguin Place are must-sees. Also visit the Otago Peninsula for stunning sea views, as well as the beautiful Tunnel Beach.
A trip to Dunedin would be incomplete without a visit to Baldwin Street, which holds the Guinness World Record for the steepest street in the world. If you're visiting in the summer, take part in the Baldwin Street Gutbuster, an annual festival in which participants run up and down the street.
