- Originally modelled on Edinburgh in Scotland, Dunedin is one of the best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere. A long, natural harbour gives way to church spires and towers of the historic town centre and university, set back against high, green forested hills. A golden trail of beaches and dizzying cliffs skirt the city’s thundering Pacific Ocean flank, where seals, penguins, albatross – and incredible surf – can be found. As well as the lure of the coast, other attractions include the fairy-tale-like historic Dunedin Railway Station, and reputedly the World’s steepest street, Baldwin Street, which runs an annual (and literal) gut-buster race. The colourful city centre, just a few minutes’ walk from the historic campus area, is full of cafes, restaurants, bars, boutiques and shopping centres of an international standard. Deservedly, Dunedin is now a popular tourist destination in its own right.
