Edinburgh of the South
With its history proudly stemming from the Scottish settlers who came here during the colonial era, Dunedin's streets are lined with well-preserved examples of Victorian and Edwardian architecture, while a new culture of nightlife and fine dining takes hold around them. Stunning views of the coastline abound, along with chances to spot some of the world's rarest wildlife, such as the northern royal albatross and the yellow-eyed penguin. Take a bike tour of Dunedin proper before heading out into the varied landscape, or soak up your surroundings on a leisurely walk. The wildlife and history of the "Edinburgh of the South" is all around you, however you wish to take it in. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your New Zealand trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
