Welcome to Ōtepoti Dunedin

Ōtepoti Dunedin is located on the South East coast of the South Island. It is a city nestled in tree-clad hills at the head of a spectacular harbour.

Ōtepoti Dunedin is the main centre of, and the gateway to, the Otago region. Population – 123,000 (student population 25,000). Dunedin is New Zealand's second-largest city by area and arguably the most spectacular in terms of contrasting landscapes.

Across Otago Harbour and Peninsula, or the majestic sweeps along the sandy beaches of St Clair, to the stunning little “secret places” such as Tunnel Beach and the haunting rocky tors and tussock of Middlemarch, our hinterland and the starting point for the Otago Central Rail Trail.

The seaside settlements of Karitane and Port Chalmers provide the perfect setting to escape the city for the day.



Dunedin locals have all teamed up to put together some terrific suggestions of what to do while you are in Dunedin.

Whether you have a couple of hours, half a day or more there is a plan for you ready to go here:
