To coincide with the official opening of the Town Hall , a group from Conference Innovators (Auckland & Christchurch office) were hosted to visit Dunedin’s sights and sounds. Hosted by Tourism Dunedin and Scenic Circle the team were totally spoiled from Scenic City Hotel’s comfy beds to being hosted in their corporate box for an evening with Stephen Tyler and Aerosmith. The amazing Forsyth Barr stadium was just the space for this and the team were able to see the range Dunedin has to offer.
Two action-packed days were held beginning with an invigorating trip in Nature’s Wonders on the Otago Peninsula to the glamour of Larnach Castle and its accommodation at Camp Estate. Tours included lunch at the Town Hall with Trish Willocks elegantly themed Edwardian Salon. Breakfast with the butterflies at Otago Museum,a sumptuous dinner at Ombrello’s Restaurant and pre-dinner drinks at the refurbished Toitu (formerly Otago Settler’s Museum), with delicious nibbles catered by Tara from bbcatering. Whistle-stop tours were made of the Art Gallery, Regent Theatre, the Porter’s Lounge at the Railway Station . Everyone was impressed with the high-tech renovation of the Dunedin Centre which sits adjacent to the Town Hall.
The famil was regarded a huge success and the hospitality, friendliness and generosity of southern folk never ceases to amaze. Dunedin certainly punches above its weight when it comes to it’s portfolio of venues.
Couple all we have to offer with the versatility and resources of the Edgar Centre, positioned for the cities best harbour views, Forbury Race way and Wingatui, the Chinese Gardens not to mention the University .
Dunedin can truly boast the best assortment of venues, in close proximity to each other as well as accommodation houses in the country.
