Mini Guide for Dunedin

Dunedin itself is in a beautiful setting but hire a car and escape to the Countryside for sweeping vistas and fabulous walking Country. The city extends onto the Otago Peninsula but still enough of it is left wild and rugged.

Hiring a car will help to make the best of your visit and is especially useful because Airport public transport is limited.  Dunedin is a great base for exploration, being only 30 minutes from Blueskin Bay and a few hours from other cities.

Staying within the city is full of excitement too, including the World's steepest roads and some without side-barriers.  Visitors who've been to Dunedin's twin city of Edinburgh in the UK. will recognise the daily bustle of students attending the local university, similar road names and other familiarities including a large statue of Robbie Burns.
