Dunedin Airport Mini Guide

Happy Landings
Sitting on the Taieri Plains in the Otago region of New Zeland's South Island is Dunedin International Airport.  Offering happy landings in a beautiful part of New Zealand, where the sky is intercepted by a ring of rugged mountain tops and the Pacific Ocean laps the natural harbour.  Dunedin effortlessly mixes history, culture and geographic phenomena to deliver an unforgettable experience.

Getting Out and About
You are most likely to arrive from another airport in New Zealand, or internationally from Australia.  Upon landing, public transport is limited with only shuttle bus and taxi transfers.  Car hire is therefore a great option for an easy onward journey, as well as for making the best of your visit.  If you have hired with Rhino, collect your vehicle from the desks just outside the airport terminal entrance, on the left hand side.  From there the city is less than 15 miles away and offers an endless list of things to see and do, as well as a good base from which to explore.  State Highways provide easy routes around the area, however if staying within the city limits be aware of steep roads without barriers in some areas.
Dunedin Airport

Small and Perfectly Formed
The airport is well laid out and convenient.  All of the typical passenger facilities are offered, plus a few extra features.  Families can enjoy the entertainment area and there are relaxing massage chairs for those who want to wind down.  Two shops provide the opportunity to max-out your luggage allowance with duty free items, last-minute essentials or local gifts and souvenirs.  The food court and cafes serve fast, fresh food, snacks and salads as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages to quench all thirsts.  If you fancy taking in some last-minute culture, try the regular feature from a selected "Artist in the Terminal". The airport has permission to extend the runway as required. This is currently on hold but with the popularity of the A380 plane, extension may come sooner rather than later.

Latest Update from Dunedin Airport:

29/04/12 - Dunedin is is direct competition with the neighbouring and bigger Queenstown Airport. This is great for travellers as you have a choice of routes to get to Dunedin and can make your decision based on price as both airports are close enough to serve the city.

Dunedin is a fabulous city on the South Island of New Zealand. It was the biggest city on the South Island until Auckland expanded. A great attraction, but you’ll need a powerful hire car to ascend it, its Baldwin Street which has the world’s steepest gradient for a main road of 1:2.9.

If you want to take in a play whilst you’re there you can book at the Fortune Theatre, the most southerly professional theatre in the world. Another great idea is to catch one of Dunedin’s many choirs in concert. There are a variety of styles to choose from.
