Introduction

Ōtepoti Dunedin is a destination that will surprise and charm you. A beautiful small city on the south-east coast of the South Island, Dunedin is steeped in history and character and is known for its wealth of natural and cultural attractions.

The spectacular coastline and hinterland are home to remarkable wildlife experiences. Some of the world’s rarest and endangered wildlife can be spotted on Dunedin’s shoreline and the worldrenowned Otago Peninsula, but a guided wildlife tour is the best way to see them up close.

Dunedin’s temperate climate translates to long summer days to enjoy the beaches and outdoor experiences and long winter nights where the stars and aurora are often on full display. Stunning heritage architecture gives the city distinctive appeal and behind the ornate facades you’ll discover cosy eateries, breweries, distilleries and bars. There are water sports on the harbour, walking, hiking and cycling trails throughout the city, wonderful golf courses and numerous surf beaches. Or you can soak up the atmosphere at a live sports match or concert in New Zealand’s only fully covered stadium.

Visible in everything from the architecture to city street names, the influence of early Scottish settlers is still prominent throughout the city. Named after Edinburgh in Gaelic, in Dunedin you’ll often hear the skirl of bagpipes to mark special occasions.

Ōtepoti has long been a place of importance for Māori, and the wider area is rich with history and stories of Kāi Tahu whaunui, the mana whenua that settled here long before Europeans arrived on these shores.

Enrich your knowledge of the area with the city’s excellent museums, cultural sites, and insightful and fascinating tours. These will immerse you in Dunedin’s history from the days of early Māori settlement, European settlement and industry, and the 1860s Otago goldrush that flooded the city with people and wealth – all people and things that have helped make Dunedin the city it is today.

The
Octagon

Dunedin is unique in many ways. One of New Zealand’s first cities, it boasts a long list of extraordinary ‘onlys’ and ‘firsts’ that can’t be experienced anywhere else, here are few that might pique your interest.

The world’s steepest street

Dunedin’s Baldwin Street has waved off recent challengers to firmly claim the title and world record as the steepest street in the world. A favourite activity for visitors is a walk to the top, for a photo opportunity.

The tallest tree

It may not be native, but this 80 metre Australian mountain ash at Orokonui Ecosanctuary is still New Zealand’s tallest tree. This forest titan is just a 1-hour walk down the valley from the ecosanctuary and is something to marvel.

New Zealand’s castle

With a prime position on top of the Otago Peninsula, Larnach Castle is New Zealand’s only authentic castle, built by William Larnach in 1871. A popular visitor attraction, the historic castle is surrounded by an impressive garden of international significance.

The albatross colony

Dunedin is the world’s one and only mainland breeding site for northern royal albatross. These remarkable seabirds can be seen nesting on or soaring around Pukekura – Taiaroa Head.

First Botanic Garden

The Dunedin Botanic Garden is New Zealand’s oldest and boasts 6800 plants species from all over the world. The stunning garden of international significance includes a variety of botanical collections, walks, artwork and other unique features throughout the lower and upper reaches.

The City of Literature

Dunedin is New Zealand’s first UNESCO Creative City and the only City of Literature. A place of poets, novelists and songwriters, head to the Octagon and follow the Writers’ Walk to be reminded of the esteemed literary talent with ties to Dunedin.

Chinese Scholars Garden

The serene Lan Yuan Dunedin Chinese Garden is the only authentic Chinese Scholars Garden in the Southern Hemisphere. A beautiful inner-city haven,it was built by in Shanghai by artisans and painstakingly reassembled in Dunedin.

Larnach Castle

Natural Wonders

Dunedin has a unique and varied natural landscape unlike anywhere else in the country. From monolithic rock formations and beach caves to views of the Aurora Australis, few places have such breath-taking surroundings in such close proximity.

Tunnel Beach

Tunnel Beach is a spectacular sight and combined natural and manmade wonder just ten minutes’ drive from the centre of town. A dramatic sandstone sea arch juts out into the Pacific Ocean, but it’s for the hand-carved tunnel and staircase leading down to a secluded beach that it’s named.

Doctors Point

Another set of wonders that reveal themselves at low tide, the Doctors Point sea arches on Blueskin Bay, offer access to hidden beaches and secret staircases between Mapoutahi to Purakanui.

Okia Reserve

Dunedin’s pyramids at Okia Reserve consist of stacks of columnar basalt that jut out of the rural coastal landscape and bear a striking resemblance to the Egyptian version. Nearby Victory Beach provides more stunning scenery and walking tracks through the dunes to the beach.

Organ Pipes

It is hard to ignore Dunedin’s volcanic past when you visit the Organ Pipes: huge hexagonal columns of basalt that sit near the hilltop of Mt Cargill. The photo opportunity is worth the walk to get there, as are the spectacular views.

Bear Rock

At the mouth of Otago Harbour, the picturesque Aramoana Beach is an amazing viewpoint to snap a few photos of the eye-catching formation known as Bear Rock (or Keyhole Rock). Take a stroll on the beach and enjoy the panoramic views of the northern coastline and Taiaroa Head.

Southern Lights

At the right time of year and in the right conditions, the Southern Lights (Aurora Australis) are visible from a number of locations around Dunedin. Grab your camera and head for the hills for the best aurora hunting vantage points or take advantage of the clear skies and take a stargazing tour just a short drive from the city centre .

Sutton Salt Lake

Hidden amid schist rock and tussocks, Sutton Salt Lake near Middlemarch is New Zealand’s only inland salt lake. Depending on the season, the lake might be filled with salty water or be completely dry, but the adventure to the scenic Dunedin hinterlands is worth the trip.

6
Southern Lights Tunnel Beach

Dunedin’s colourful history is evident in everything from the exquisite Edwardian and Victorian architecture that give Dunedin its distinct charm and character, to the stories and places of cultural significance to mana whenua.

Iconic buildings

The Dunedin Railway Station is one of the city’s most treasured historic buildings. Opened in 1906, the railway station is nicknamed ‘the gingerbread house’ for its distinctive Flemish renaissance design.

First Church and St Paul’s Cathedral are two of the more prominent churches among the many beautiful examples found around the city, with spires that tower over the skyline.

New Zealand’s oldest brewery is a stop worth making, to fill up on spring water from the tap outside or tour the interior, learning about the early days and evolution of Speight’s beer.

The University of Otago Clocktower is another iconic local landmark. Located on one of the world’s most beautiful campuses, the building has been the backdrop for everything from graduation photos to movie locations over the years.

Historic homes and castles

Set atop the stunning Otago Peninsula with views in every direction, Larnach Castle has a fascinating history and is surrounded by a sixstar Garden of International Significance, where a sumptuous high tea is served over the warmer months.

Art and antique lovers will love Olveston Historic Home which overlooks the inner city. Exquisite artefacts, paintings, tapestries and curiosities from around the world, grace the rooms of this Edwardian mansion.

Culturally significant sites

The Dunedin area has been inhabited by Māori since around 1250 and contains many important cultural sites.

Around the region, there are a number of historic pā (village) sites at Pukekura (Taiaroa Head), Mapoutahi (Doctors Point) and Huriawa Peninsula (Karitane) they were important settlements for both defence and food gathering. These are beautiful places with views for miles over the expanse of the Pacific Ocean, and well worth exploring independently or with one of the excellent Māori tour operators.

New Zealand’s Wildlife Capital

Dunedin is known as the Wildlife Capital of New Zealand and is home to some of the world’s rarest and most endangered species, living in the wild or in local sanctuaries.

Otago Peninsula

Globally renowned as a wildlife and eco-tourism destination the Otago Peninsula and harbour is an area of outstanding biodiversity and the perfect habitat for an array of animals, including albatross, yellow-eyed penguins, little blue penguins, New Zealand fur seals and sea lions. The Otago Peninsula headland is special to Dunedin and globally unique as the only place in the world with a mainland breeding colony of the northern royal albatross, who have a wingspan of up to 3 metres. Boat tours of the Otago Harbour allow for unrivalled viewing of these marvellous creatures alongside other rare marine birdlife and mammals, including the occasional whale and Hector’s dolphins.

Wider Dunedin

Just north of the city in a valley high above Blueskin Bay is the South Island’s largest mainland wildlife reserve Orokonui Ecosanctuary, which is set in a native cloud forest. Spot rare native birds like takahe, kaka or the elusive tuatara, a rare reptile and ‘living fossil’ from the age of the dinosaurs.

The best way to view wildlife is with a guided tour, which can access areas not open to the public and follow recommended guidelines and bylaws.

Many local tour businesses and wildlife attractions play an active role in habitat and species regeneration, so not only will you leave Dunedin with lasting memories, but also have contributed to the ongoing conservation of its wildlife and special places.

New Zealand sea lion

Dunedin has an amazing selection of interesting eateries, artisan producers, bars, distilleries, craft breweries and an awesome café culture. Visit cosy venues in heritage buildings, picturesque seaside settings and hilltop eateries with views of the city.

Dining out

Within a few short blocks of the Octagon, you can traverse the globe by sampling everything from tapas and Asian fusion through to innovative ‘trust the chef’ style menus where locally-sourced produce is the hero. From fine dining to more casual eats, there are plenty of options for excellent food, including vegetarian and vegan choices.

Otago Farmers Market

Stop off at the Otago Farmers Market which takes place every Saturday morning next to the iconic Dunedin Railway Station. Stock up on local produce including fish, meat, fruit and vegetables along with locally made artisanal foods and drinks, perfect for a gourmet breakfast on the go or for picnic supplies.

A bounty from the ocean

As an oceanside city, Dunedin is lucky to have ready access to a variety of seafood and is particularly known for fresh locally caught blue cod and tasty little neck clams. You’ll find these on the menu of many restaurants, pubs, cafes and of course the local fish and chip shops.

Coffee culture

Dunedin’s café culture punches well above its weight and the city’s many cafes and coffee spots champion locally roasted and blended brews. You won’t have to go far to find a great coffee, it’s practically everywhere.

Craft beer and distilleries

Dunedin has a distinguished history with beer brewing. Speight’s has been made here since 1876 and Emerson’s since 1992, both breweries offer tours. More recently, the city has developed a burgeoning craft brewery and distillery scene. Hunt out your favourite drops which include some interesting native ingredients and flavours at tasting rooms around the city.

Local tastes

The Dunedin dining scene is interesting and varied, but while you’re here you might also want to sample some of the iconic local tastes that the city is known for. The cheese roll is a staple at almost every café and other born in Dunedin flavours include Protein Cream milkshakes, hokey pokey ice cream, the chop suey patty and the country’s first instant coffee.

Dunedin UNESCO City of Literature

Dunedin is a magnificent example of a small city that lives, breathes and connects through its people, its rich culture, and its intense love of books. Although a young city in world terms, Dunedin is well known as a university town of excellence in research and learning, and a place where writers and literature thrive.

In 2014 Dunedin became New Zealand’s first ever UNESCO City of Literature and a member of the wider Creative Cities Network. This permanent title formally recognises the fact that storytelling and education are central to Dunedin’s identity. In fact, the Octagon – the physical centre and metaphorical heart of the city – is dominated by a statue of famed Scottish poet, Robbie Burns.

For us, living in a City of Literature is about working together and sharing ideas across the whole creative community. It is about connecting with all readers and writers through libraries, schools, bookshops, festivals, workshops, events, performances, exhibitions, and more. Our city celebrates its wonderful writers of fiction and non-fiction, its poets, oral storytellers, playwrights, screenwriters, and lyricists. Dunedin nurtures creative dialogue between authors, publishers, booksellers, musicians, actors, fine artists, designers, and photographers. Together, we make up one of the world’s great small cities.

Connect with our City of Literature story by visiting our website www.cityofliterature.co.nz or join the conversation on www.facebook.com/cityofliteraturenz.

DUNEDIN BOTANIC GARDEN

A Six Star Garden

World Class Gardens

New Zealand is internationally recognised for its prestigious gardens. For people with a love of gardens, Dunedin may very well exceed their expectations.

The New Zealand Garden Trust has been established by New Zealand’s national horticultural body, the Royal New Zealand Institute of Horticulture. Before a garden can display the NZGT logo, it is inspected by a team of independent assessors who are looking for the creativity and attention to detail that makes these gardens stand out from others.

Established in 1863 and moved to its present site in 1867, the Dunedin Botanic Garden is New Zealand’s first Botanic Garden and is internationally recognised for its excellence as a public garden as well as its botanical collections. A garden of International Significance, occupying 30ha with more than 6800 plant species, with 19 themed garden collections and an aviary.

Set high on the hills of the Otago Peninsula is Larnach Castle and its splendid garden, reflecting over 40 years of dedication and hard work by its owners and staff. The Castle has also been acknowledged with the accolade Garden of International Significance. People don’t have to be a garden expert to enjoy themselves; it’s about the atmosphere, the history and being with nature. (Refer to page 37).

The Lan Yuan Dunedin Chinese Garden opened in 2008 and immediately became the recipient of acclaim and awards. Built by The Dunedin Chinese Gardens Trust, this is one of only three truly authentic scholar’s gardens created outside China.

Olveston Historic Home’s garden, covering 4ha, was originally developed about 100 years ago along with the house and redeveloped in the 1990’s. It has continued to evolve while preserving the history of the house. The garden is open daily.

Please allow plenty of time when visiting these splendid gardens.

Dunedin Botanic Garden

Otago’s Chinese history began in 1864 and 1865 when Chinese gold seekers in Victoria, Australia were invited to rework the Otago goldfields by the Otago Provincial Council and business leaders. Thus began Chinese emigration to New Zealand, the third ethnic wave to immigrate here after the Polynesian and European. Chinese numbers reached 4,200, or 6% of Otago’s population in 1871, and a national peak of 5000, or 1% of New Zealand’s population, in 1881.

As the gold ran out, the Chinese moved into towns throughout New Zealand. By the 1920s Chinese leadership and population was concentrated in Wellington and Auckland: Dunedin was already the ‘old’ centre of Chinese settlement. Like Dunedin itself, however, the city’s Chinese community has retained a degree of influence in national affairs beyond its numbers. At its core is a small, tight-knit group of families, many of whom have a long history in Otago. The Dunedin Chinese Garden is a memorial to that distinctive history.

The Garden is emblematic of the long-term relationship that Dunedin and the Otago region have with China, building on the past but looking to the future. It was first proposed at the time of the city’s sesquicentennial celebrations in 1998 when a Dunedin Chinese Garden Trust was created to create a fitting, permanent, recognition of the Chinese who first came to Otago during the 1860s gold rushes and stayed on to become a significant section of the Otago community. The original scheme was somewhat more modest than what has eventuated. The expanded version was driven by Dunedin’s sister city relationship with Shanghai, established in 1994. This relationship recognises the strong influence of Chinese on Otago history, and has been developed through the involvement of the local Chinese population.

This led eventually to the Shanghai Municipal Government and the Shanghai Museum becoming partners in the Chinese Garden project. Their involvement brought to the project a degree of expertise that could not have been accessed otherwise as well as vital contacts in highly specialised crafts and construction techniques. Ultimately, it meant that the Garden itself was constructed by artisans in China, disassembled, shipped and reassembled in Dunedin at a cost of about $6.5 million. The result is a late Ming, early Ching Dynasty Scholar’s Garden, using authentic Chinese materials. In addition to the hand-made wooden buildings, the Garden features hand-made tiles, bricks and lattice-work and hand-finished granite paving stones. The Dunedin Chinese Garden is therefore one of very few ‘authentic’ Chinese gardens outside China, and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere. This outcome is entirely due to the sister city relationship between Shanghai and Dunedin.

Central Dunedin City is the proud possessor of a diverse selection of attractions and activities to suit all interests, city sightseeing, culture, entertainment, the outdoors and adventure. Being a compact city, Dunedin allows you to make the most of your time and visit many of the quality experiences that are on offer. Here you can discover eco- tourism and heritage at its best, overlaid with the fun culture of New Zealand’s liveliest university city. Tours are a great way to see a lot if your time is limited and Dunedin has a diverse range of guided activities to choose from. And don’t forget to drop by the world’s steepest street, Baldwin Street in North Dunedin.

Your first glance of Dunedin will tell you it is a city of gardens. The Town Belt cuts a green swathe across the width of the city, with native forest, exotic trees and a wealth of sports fields and recreational reserves. Dunedin’s cultural heritage runs deep, especially for a city that is young by world standards. One of Dunedin’s great strengths is the way it lives with and values its heritage. Rather than turning its fine Victorian and Edwardian buildings into museum pieces, the city cherishes and uses them, allowing you the opportunity to visit a number of them. Here the streets hum vibrantly with colour and culture, and the beauty of nature can still be found - everywhere. It is a city of rare charm.

Cycling in Dunedin

Dunedin is a fantastic city for cycling. Otago Peninsula has twice been named one of the top ten rides in the world by Lonely Planet guide. It has a network of dedicated cycle lanes and shared pedestrian and cycle paths, as well as a multitude of off-road tracks.

Ōtepoti Dunedin’s shared pathway which lines the scenic Otago Harbour is the perfect excuse to get out and about, enjoy some scenery and explore the wider Dunedin area. The path has been bestowed the official name of Te Aka Ōtākou (The Otago Vine), fitting, as the trail clings to the shores of one of the most picturesque locations in the country. Te Aka Ōtākou comprises two sections; Te Ara Moana (The Ocean Path) which spans the section from about the Leith Stream bridge to Port Chalmers, and Te Awa Ōtākou (The Ocean River) which is the eastern or Otago Peninsula trail to Portobello.

A compact layout and a flat run all the way from the top of North East Valley through to South Dunedin and St Clair beach, or around the Harbour, make Dunedin easy to get around by bike. Many popular Dunedin attractions are easily accessible via the cycle routes.

For those who like getting off-road, Dunedin also offers plenty of excellent mountain biking for all skill levels and through all sorts of country, from mountains to bush, coastline to inner city off-road tracks.

A series of pamphlets issued by the DCC community recreation services offers a good description of the mountain biking tracks that are available for the recreational cyclist and those who like an exciting challenge. Most tracks are close to the centre of town in the ‘Town Belt’ and are easily accessible from town.

Mountain Bike Tracks in Dunedin City

Dunedin is a bikers’ playground. The summer climate is perfect for mountain biking, with warm temperatures and a late setting sun. The city features a compact layout and a flat run for commuting in the city, as well as a number of great mountain biking tracks and views from the surrounding peaks.

Redwoods: Redwoods/Wakari is a great place to start your mountain bike ride. Located in a forest of Redwoods, Douglas Fir and Cedars, this compact yet diverse collection of trails offers a challenge for all levels of riders. Try the beginner level Redwood Loop, working your way up through the large Redwoods to the top hub, where there are a multitude of downhill options. You can easily spend a couple of fun-filled hours exploring here.

Nichols Creek: Within 5 minutes riding time of Redwoods, you will find the hand-built singletrack trail known as Nichols Creek. This intermediate level trail winds its way up 6km regenerating native forest to a height of 450m ASL. This trail is both an up and down trail, with some wicked natural rock features that will get the adrenalin flowing. This is a trail that stays rideable even in the wet.

Bethunes Gully/Forester Park: A beginner/intermediate network of trails at the end of North East Valley. This is a good place for beginners new to mountainbiking. Ride around Forrester and then through the flowing corners of Spooky Forest.

Signal Hill: Dunedin’s downhill and enduro mecca, this trail network has been recently expanded to include over 20 different trails. There is a huge variety of trails for the intermediate and expert riders, including XC, enduro and downhill trails. Access is next to Logan Park High School, up the Big Easy uphill trail.

Otago Peninsula Mountain Bike Trails

Karetai Road: A beginner mountain bike trail across farmland giving fantastic coastal views. This steep trail climbs up from Smaills Beach to the top of Highcliff Road.

Buskin Road: An intermediate level track linking Highcliff Road to Boulder Beach over farmland.

Paradise Track: Similar to Buskin Road, an intermediate level track over farmland linking Highcliff Road to Boulder Beach.

Camp Road: A beginner level track linking Larnach Castle with Broad Bay, with stunning views over the lower harbour and heads.

There is a new ferry service operating between Portobello and Port Chalmers; see Port to Port Cruises (page 41).

For more information, check out www.trailforks.com or the Dunedin City Cycle Map.

Middlemarch

The Otago Central Rail Trail is New Zealand’s original great ride, winding 151km between Middlemarch and Clyde. For more information refer to Middlemarch page 43.

Baldwin Street - Steepest Street in the World

Baldwin Street according to the Guinness Book of Records is considered the world’s steepest residential street. It is located in the suburb of North East Valley, 3.5 kilometres northeast of Dunedin’s city centre. (Refer to Central City Map pages 56 & 57)

A short straight street a little under 350 metres (1,150 ft) long, Baldwin Street runs east from the valley of the Lindsay Creek up the side of Signal Hill towards Opoho, rising from 30 m (98 ft) above sea level at its junction with North Road to 100 m (330 ft) above sea level at the top, an average slope of slightly more than 1:5. Its lower reaches are only moderately steep, and the surface is asphalt, but the upper reaches of this cul-de-sac are far steeper, and surfaced in concrete (200 m (660 ft) long) for safety on Dunedin’s frosty winter mornings. At its maximum, the slope of Baldwin Street is about 1:2.86 (19° or 35%) – that is, for every 2.86 metres travelled horizontally, the elevation rises by 1 metre.

Baldwin Street Care Code

• Respect private property. Baldwin Street is a residential street

• Park safely and legally. Keep clear of road ends with private gateways/thoroughfares as private landowners need access to their properties at all times

• Keep safe. Pedestrians keep on the footpath, drivers are not expecting you to be on the road. Look before you cross.

• Be tidy. Use public rubbish bins

• Please park on North Road and do not drive vehicles, especially campervans into Baldwin Street; there is nowhere to turn around or exit.

• Public toilets are on North Road, near the bottom of Baldwin Street.

Photo:JimmyJohnson(DOC) The walks give access to diverse natural features, including ancient forests, young plantations, tussock-clad summits, developed farmland, spectacular coastal scenery, and rare wildlife. Dunedin’s geology is equally varied, with igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, and volcanic hills following eruptions around Port Chalmers 10–13 million years ago. Erosion has sculpted Otago Harbour, with old lava flows on the peninsula’s coastal cliffs and at There is a rich mixture of native and introduced birds. In North Dunedin the kererū/wood pigeon is common. These large colourful birds fly with whooshing wingbeats and eat berries, flowers and leaves in both the bush and domestic gardens. The smaller native birds are bellbird/korimako, grey warbler/ riroriro, tomtit/miromiro and fantail/pīwakawaka. Higher up, flocks of brown creeper/pīpipi, busy little birds with a warbling song, can be seen. The silvereye/tauhou is common in winter, and there’s a small population of the rarer native robin/ toutouwai in the Flagstaff area. New Zealand has two raptors, the Australasian harrier/kāhu and New Zealand falcon/kārearea, which can both be seen in open areas around Dunedin. Common exotic birds include the blackbird, song thrush, starling, chaffinch and other finches. A colourful recent settler in forests round Mount Cargill is the eastern rosella, an Australian parakeet. In pre-European times Dunedin’s forests hosted yellow-crowned parakeet/kākāriki, kākā and laughing owl. The nocturnal Australian brush-tailed possum has had major impact on native plants and birdlife throughout the Dunedin area. Extensive control programmes are in place to manage these, and other, pests. Invertebrates include the red admiral and tussock butterflies. Skinks and geckos can be seen by keen observers in the wild places that surround Dunedin City. Several streams are home to some of our reclusive native kōkopu, introduced fish such the common brown trout Salmo trutta and huge variety of freshwater invertebrates such as mayflies, stoneflies and freshwater crayfish. Brown trout and salmon are common and even spawn in the Water of Leith. Ross Creek Reservoir.

The track begins from Mountain Road car park, which follows Green Ridge to the site of the former Green Hut. The site is now a pleasant picnic and camping area (please note that there is no drinking water) where you may see fern birds (mātā) or, more likely, hear their short sharp ‘tchip tchip’ call and the metallic double note ‘uu tick, uu tick’.

Otago Peninsula

“In my opinion, the Otago Peninsula is the finest example of eco-tourism in the world”. Sir David Bellamy

Otago Peninsula

The Otago Peninsula (19,000ha), stretching along the southern edge of the Otago Harbour is an easy drive from central Dunedin. A wonderfully scenic trip will see you passing lush green pastures, small bays and inlets, sandy beaches, rugged hills and volcanic landforms. So near to a major city centre, yet so far removed from the hectic pace of city living.

The Otago Peninsula is arguably New Zealand’s most renowned eco tourism area. There are unique opportunities to view a remarkable range of wildlife including Royal Albatross, blue penguins and the rare yelloweyed penguins, a variety of seals, water and wading birds.

Explore the Peninsula’s well preserved and colourful history. Larnach Castle, Glenfalloch Woodland Garden and the Disappearing Gun at Taiaroa Head are just some of the highlights of any visit.

Discover the talents of current residents when you visit the galleries, studio and craft shops that dot the small townships and bays.

Otago Peninsula’s cafes and restaurants offer a good selection of food at reasonable prices and the opportunity to sample some of New Zealand’s award-winning Central Otago wines.

If making a 64km round tour of the Peninsula you may choose to travel the harbourside road out to Taiaroa Heads and return to Dunedin via the high road. Highcliff Road offers magnificent coastal and city views as well as numerous photo opportunities.

There is a ferry service operating between Portobello and Port Chalmers.

A request to visitors: we want you to enjoy your time on the Otago Peninsula and so we would ask that you show consideration to other people driving on the roads by using the various parking bays that are provided allowing sightseeing opportunities.

The Otago Peninsula roads are popular with pedestrians and cyclists, for this reason we urge caution when driving.

There are a number of optional detours and walks for those with time to spare - and the time is always well spent. Wildlife and their natural habitats are precious and access to tracks and viewing areas is given with permission of landowners. As the saying goes - take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints.

For those wishing to sit back, relax and enjoy the coastal scenery, there is a variety of excellent wildlife and scenic tours available, either by land or harbour cruises. Bookings can be made for these at the Dunedin i-Site Visitor Centre Phone (03) 474 3300, refer to page 2.

Where can you camp on the Otago Peninsula? Camping is permitted in designated camping grounds - camping is not permitted on reserves.

Only self-contained campervans (compliant with NZS5465:2001) can stay on public land and DCC carparks for up to two consecutive nights at one site, as long as there are no more than three campervans within a 50m radius and it is legally parked (no parking on grass). There is a DCC pamphlet available to you.

For information on where to camp please visit www.dunedin.govt.nz or https://www.dunedin.govt.nz/community-facilities/freedom-camping.

Port Chalmers

Heritage town

Originally named Koputai by Kai Tahu, Port Chalmers became an important trading port for sealers and whalers in the early 19th century. By 1863 it was the third largest port in Australasia, fuelled by the Otago gold rush.

It went on to farewell the first cargo of refrigerated meat in 1882, and the likes of Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton as they embarked on their Antarctic expeditions. The wealth of the port, and the role it played in shaping early New Zealand, is reflected in its fine collection of bluestone buildings and rich maritime history.

Our beautiful environment

By car, on foot or by horseback, Port Chalmers and the surrounding bays offer dramatic views of Otago’s harbour and coastal landscape. The natural deepwater port is a prime salmon fishing spot, and the harbour ’s sheltered bays are perfect for kayaking and rowing.

Just fifteen minutes’ drive to the north you’ll find isolated white sand beaches sweeping around the Pacific coastline. Or you can head up the hill road above Port and visit the fenced native wildlife sanctuary of Orokonui, just a scenic 10 minute drive from Port Chalmers.

Closer to the town, there are numerous native bushwalks rich with birdsong, and winding streets full of old cottages and villas, which offer an insight into how the Otago harbourside once was.

The recently opened Te Aka Ōtākau (the Otago Vine) shared cycle and walking pathway extends 32km from Port Chalmers to Portobello on the Otago Peninsula, comprises two sections, Te Ara Moana (The Ocean Path),which spans the section from Forsyth Barr Stadium to Port Chalmers; and Te Awa Ōtākau (the Ocean River), which is the eastern or Otago Peninsula trail to Portobello.

Port culture

Port Chalmers was put on the New Zealand art map by its most famous resident, artist Ralph Hotere. But if you dig a little deeper you’ll discover a vibrant range of art and culture from potters and sculptors to musicians, jewellers and fashion designers.

Supporting this creative community is an eclectic mix of galleries, design boutiques, antique stores, cafes and restaurants, many of which are housed in the port’s original historic buildings.

A 1 hour scenic drive from Dunedin on State Highway 87 will bring you to the Strath Taieri and Middlemarch, a close-knit farming community that welcomes visitors to experience their lifestyle and explore the dramatic scenery surrounding them. From the top of the Rock and Pillar Range, where you can find the Giant Weta (Hemideina maori), to schist tors lower down, where you will discover the Otago and Grand skinks and the New Zealand Falcon, you will continually be amazed and delighted by what you will see here.

Take a walk through tussock and rock tors to Sutton Salt Lake, New Zealand’s only inland salt lake. It is 30cm deep at most and is often dry. (1 and a quarter hours return).

The Rock and Pillar Range (summit 1450m) provides a playground for trampers and cross-country skiers with small huts dotted in the area (www.doc.govt.nz for more info).

Trout fishing is a must at Taieri River, New Zealand’s third longest river (318km). With many access points, you are sure to find a secluded spot where the fish are biting.

The Middlemarch Museum is situated in the former Masonic Lodge building in Aberafon St. It houses a comprehensive collection of local historical artefacts including simulated static displays. Opening on request, it also boasts “Platypus” a submarine designed for the recovery of gold from river beds, first tested in 1874.

The Otago Central Rail Trail, New Zealand’s original great ride, can be walked, cycled or horseback ridden and has the advantage of no cars or hills and it’s free. You can take as little or as long as you like to complete the Rail Trail and with so many great places to see along the way, it is well worth taking your time.

The Rail Trail itself provides a wonderful and unique insight into railway engineering of the early 20th Century with fantastic bridges (over 60), viaducts and tunnels to see and explore. The Rail Trail is also very flexible in that if you have little time, day trips can be made as access to the Rail Trail is easy from the main highways.

The Otago Central Rail Trail winds 151km from Clyde to Alexandra and then down through the Manuherikia and Ida Valleys until it reaches Middlemarch, situated on the Strath Taieri. The Otago Central Railway originally branched from the main trunk at Wingatui, 12 kilometres south of Dunedin, and ran through Middlemarch, Ranfurly, Omakau and Alexandra to Cromwell in the heart of Central Otago, 235 km from the junction. Construction was protracted, commencing in 1879 at the Dunedin end and not completed to Cromwell until 1921. At various points travellers can break their journey to experience the blue sky, barren landscape and sense of history. Be sure to also sample the legendary hospitality that the locals are rightly famous for. Stay a few days, you will be made most welcome.

Dunedin’s Scottish Heritage & Shopping

With the arrival in 1848 of the vessels John Wickliffe, Philip Laing, Blundell and Bernicia, the settling of Dunedin had finally begun. Originally named New Edinburgh, the name was changed to Dunedin, being the old Celtic name for Edinburgh.

George Rennie, a wealthy Scot was one of the original backers for a new Scottish settlement in New Zealand. In 1842 he enlisted the help of William Cargill and the Reverend Thomas Burns to promote the proposed settlement.

1843 saw turmoil in the Presbyterian Church in Scotland. The Disruption as it was known, effectively split the Church in half. The Free Church of Scotland was formed and withdrew from the Established Kirk of Scotland. Both the Rev. Thomas Burns and William Cargill joined with the Free Church of Scotland and, in association with Edward Wakefield and his New Zealand Company, started the daunting task of planning and selling the new settlement to investors and prospective settlers. Land was purchased from three local Māori chiefs in 1844 and by the end of 1846 the survey of the future Dunedin had been completed by Charles Kettle. As he had spent time in Edinburgh, he used many of its names and places in the new Dunedin.

As a result of the high unemployment in Scotland brought about by the clearances of the Highlands, as well as general social unrest in Britain, interest in the scheme steadily increased. After many delays, November 1847 saw the departure from Gravesend of the first vessel, the John Wickliffe.

On 23 November 1873, the wooden church at Bell Hill was replaced with the splendid stone First Church designed by the architect R A Lawson. Along with their strong religious beliefs, the Scottish settlers brought their passion for education; the first university in New Zealand, the University of Otago, being opened in 1869.

Today, the Scottish influence is still apparent in Dunedin; the famous poet Robert Burns statue is prominently situated in the Octagon, the City’s centre.

Dunedin has evolved its own lively, ritualistic and colourful Haggis Ceremony performed for groups by the Piping Hot Haggis performers.

Make a point of visiting the shops that cater for those interested in Scottish heritage; tartans, haggis and souvenirs are available. Of special appeal for Dunedin’s Caledonian Societies and Burns Club members, Scottish Week is a must for everyone who is a Scot at heart – ochaye!

Scottish Shop – Now in a new location! A proud reflection of Dunedin’s Scottish Heritage. We welcome you to pop in and browse our tantalising array of tartan scarves, kilts, Celtic jewellery, heraldic accessories and Scottish delicacies.

Southern surfing throughout Otago and Southland offers some of the most challenging and rewarding surf breaks to be found anywhere in the country.

From fun beach breaks just minutes away from the city centre, through to long lazy point breaks on the North Coast to numerous gnarly reefs, points and beach breaks, the range and quality has a bit of something for everyone – from learners through to experienced thrill-seekers wanting to put everything on the line, including some recently explored low-breaks.

Geographically, the area is wide open to big Southern Ocean swells ranging consistently from 1m-3m, but 4m to 6m-plus waves are a regular occurrence throughout the year. It’s the reason the Rex Von Huben memorial Big Wave contest is held here, usually in October and attracting a hard-core of the country’s best to celebrate the life of a legendary Dunedin local.

A combination of east and north swells from tropical cyclones offers a similar wave quality around Dunedin’s north coast, encompassing at least 10 breaks from Aramoana “Spit” through to Karitane fishing village, and some beyond. Combining the north and south coasts with beaches on the Otago Peninsula means there is rarely a day when the more persistent surfer can’t find a break with an off-shore wind. Crowds in the water are still at manageable levels outside the city breaks and it’s not uncommon for a travelling crew to score epic surf to themselves at some of the more out-of-the way breaks. But taking your turn in the lineup is expected when numbers creep up.

For the adventurous, the Southern Scenic Route around The Catlins in South Otago provides ample opportunity for weekends away to explore a myriad of surf breaks. Rest up at Kaka Point, go rock fishing, paua diving or take a break between tides with some stunning coastal track walks. There’s plenty of choice for accommodation, ranging from holiday parks, motels, homestays, backpackers and cribs (baches). From The Catlins it’s only a brief drive to Southland which again supplies numerous breaks providing consistent surf opportunities. Try out the Riverton and Colac Bay breaks.

Be aware of the water temperature, spring suits in summer are a luxury and most people use summer steamers, backed up by a warmer winter suit, plus booties, gloves and helmet for the worst of June through to August. But don’t despair, all the winter months have numerous calm, clear offshore days without a cloud in the sky – even if it is only 4 degC.
