Dunedin, New Zealand

Dunedin is a city built from the riches of the Central Otago goldrush. As a result, it has some stunning architecture, and in my view is a beautiful city. The cultural heritage of Dunedin is largely Scottish, and it is often referred to as the Edinbrough of the south.

These days, the main industry of the city is unquestionably the University of Otago, with roughly 15% of the city's 120,000 strong population being students. People come from all around the country, and even around the world to study in what is often argued to be the best university in the country, and is the southernmost university in the world.

There are many things on offer for the tourist in Dunedin, especially if you are a lover of nature, and of architecture. There is the Royal Albatross Colony, the Tairei Gorge Railway, Larnach Castle, Olveston, and much more. Also for you chocolate lovers out there, there is the tour of one of the oldest Cadbury factories in the world - a must do in my book. And don't forget Baldwin Street - the world's steepest street!

Dunedin is situated about 4 hours drive south of Christchurch on the east coast of the South Island. One word of warning - don't go in winter if you don't like the cold!
