Street art under a bridge in Dunedin.

Dunedin

‘Dunners’ is a city full of enchantment—just ask our city experts. Follow Nadia Reid to the top of Mount Cargill for a 360 view of Dunedin’s rugged coastline, or catch the outgoing tide off a deserted boat shed at Pūrākaunui inlet with Woof! Bar owner Josh Thomas. If indoor experiences are more your speed, take a tip from local fashion designer Sara Munro and head off for a gallery crawl to soak in Dunedin’s eclectic art scene. Wander the gem-filled Warehouse Precinct with architect Damien van Brandenburg, and let local innovation champion Heidi Renata show you how to wind down with an evening of great jazz and espresso martinis.
