Quality of Life

Dunedin is about choosing the lifestyle you want – and then living it. It’s about smiling at the people who walk past you, on your own street or on the main street and seeing them smile back at you. It’s about deciding whether you want the ten-minute drive, the 15-minute bike ride or the half hour walk to work. It’s about deciding what to do on the weekend – surf, drink coffee, shop or hike in the mountains just down the road. Dunedin is about your lifestyle.

Gateway to Otago

Dunedin is the gateway to Central Otago, New Zealand’s leading tourist resort. Only an hour’s drive from the city centre to the northern edge of our boundary you will reach Middlemarch, where the Central Otago experience really begins. For many people taking the Taieri Gorge Railway into this historic town is an experience they’ll never forget and where enthusiasts begin their Otago Central Rail Trail experience.
