Dunedin

Dunedin dunedin- sounds like a name with a past, a name worthy of a long history yet a name with a ring of the wild. Nearly 850 square miles of wildlife and history twines with a coast that stretches from the Waitaki River north of Oamaru to the mighty Clutha River south of Dunedin giving form to the snaking long coastline. Nearly four centuries ago the original inhabitants of the New Zealand’s, the Maoris were drawn to the mystic hills surrounding a long and inviting natural harbor on this coast. Then came the gold miners and the whalers, followed by immigrants from Scotland and china, modernity has been gracious to Dunedin.

History has left an undeniable mark on the landscape of Dunedin, home to some of the best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the entire southern hemisphere. Amidst the enticing beauty of the waitaki landscape lays the historical architecture in Whitestone. The Flemish renaissance era architecture of the railway station is one of Dunedin’s main attractions. A traveler’s paradise, Dunedin has the rarest penguin on earth called Hoiho also known as the yellow eyes penguins as its proud resident. Along with another rarity, the world’s only mainland Albatross colony, sea lions and fur seals makes up the mélange of sea faring wildlife.

Wildlife and modernity must be at loggerhead everywhere else in the world but here at Dunedin they live in harmony and peace. Travelers will come upon rolling grasslands and idyllic fishing spots thrown in with all the surprises of the wild. The oldest seat of learning in New Zealand, the University of Otago was founded in 1869 in Dunedin. Yet, one can easily fly into Dunedin from anywhere in New Zealand all round the year.
