Bus and Coach Services From Dunedin

Dunedin cenntral city showing the OctagonDunedin is the second-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the principal city of the region of Otago. It is New Zealand's fifth largest city in population, the largest in size of council boundary area and the hub of the sixth-largest urban area.

For historical and cultural reasons and its location, Dunedin is considered one of the country's four main centres, although Hamilton has overtaken it in urban-area population and Tauranga has a slightly larger urban-area population.

The city stands on the hills and valleys surrounding the head of Octagon Harbour. The harbour and hills are the remnants of an extinct volcano.

As an university city of Scottish heritage, Dunedin, being New Zealand's oldest city, possesses a unique combination of cultural riches, fine architecture, and world-famous wildlife reserves on the Otago Peninsula.

Dunedin is the main centre of Otago, a region recognised for its spectacular scenery. The sheer physical beauty of Dunedin, dramatic bush-covered hills and valleys at the head of a long natural harbour, attracted Maori settlers to the site over four centuries ago.

Dunedin City - Classical BuildingsFrom small settlement beginnings, Dunedin has became the centre for the nation's wealth. Soaring cathedral spires, a magnificent Flemish-style railway station, fine banks and office blocks, a nineteenth-century castle, old university buildings and a neo-gothic convent are among the city's architectural treasures.

Dunedin has flourishing niche industries including engineering, software engineering, bio-technology and fashion. Port Chalmers on the Otago Harbour provides Dunedin with deep-water port facilities.

Dunedin is also notable now as a centre for eco-tourism. Uniquely, the world's only mainland Royal Albatross colony and several penguin and seal colonies lie within the city boundaries on Otago Peninsula.

There is thriving tertiary student population has led to a vibrant youth culture (so named 'Scarfies'), consisting of the Dunedin's unique music scene, and more recently a burgeoning boutique fashion industry.
