Dunedin is a city located in the South Island of New Zealand and ranks second largest in the region, next only to Christchurch. Dunedin is the principal city of Otago and lies on the central-eastern coast of the region, surrounding the Otago Harbour. The city got its name from Dùn Èideann, which is the Scottish Gaelic name of Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh. In fact, Dunedin is often referred to as the “Edinburgh of New Zealand” due to its strong Scottish heritage.
Known for beautiful hills that extend up to a picturesque harbor, Dunedin is one of the Southern Hemisphere’s best-preserved Edwardian and Victorian-style cities. Aside from its undeniable beauty, the city also has a diverse economy that includes technological industries, tourism, manufacturing, publishing, and education, to name a few. Dunedin is a major center for education and is home to the oldest university in New Zealand, the University of Otago. In addition, the city was elected as a UNESCO City of Literature.
Over the years, Dunedin has also built a reputation as one of the top tourist destinations in the country. The city has plenty of natural attractions, historic buildings, and cultural institutions that draw visitors regularly. There is also an ample amount of accommodations and restaurants to cater to the tourists that arrive at the city every year.

Top Things to Do
Dunedin is one of the most diverse and exciting cities in New Zealand. There is no shortage of activities and exciting attractions to visit here, and you can easily spend days exploring the best of the city. Here are some spots that you should not miss when in Dunedin:
Dunedin is packed with world-class cultural institutions, particularly museums, where visitors can learn more about the history and heritage of the city and the Otago region. If you have to narrow down your list, here are the top museums you should visit:
Otago Museum: The Otago Museum, located in the heart of the city, is home to one of New Zealand’s biggest museum collections and is one of Dunedin’s most visited attractions. The facility has seven galleries, housing an extensive collection of humanities artifacts and natural science specimens, including skeletons, early Maori treasures, and more. Otago Museum also has the Tuhura Otago Community Trust Science Centre, an interactive science engagement development that features a massive tropical butterfly environment and a DNA-inspire helical slide (Bag policy: The museum has coat storage and lockers for guests who have large bags or luggage. A more convenient and secure way option would be to store your things at a Bounce location near the area.)
Dunedin Museum of Natural Mystery: The Dunedin Museum of Natural Mystery is one of the city’s most unique attractions and one worth paying a visit to. The facility was created by artist Bruce Mahalski as a result of his lifelong dream to own a museum-gallery. It is located at Mahalski’s Royal Terrace residence and houses a fascinating collection of bones, skulls, ethnological art, biological curiosities, and other odd artifacts that he has collected over the years. (Bag policy: There are no strict restrictions on bags inside the museum. However, if you want a hassle-free visit, leave your things with Bounce).
Toitu Otago Settlers Museum: As its name suggests, the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum is a social history museum dedicated to tracking and sharing the story of the early settlers on different parts of the South Island, particularly Dunedin. The facility, which is the oldest history museum in New Zealand, features fourteen different themed galleries with interactive exhibits and narratives that trace the history of the area – from the arrival of the first Maori people until the present-day arrivals. (Bag policy: Large bags or backpacks are not permitted inside the museum and must be left in their coat check area. Another alternative would be to drop off your things at a Bounce location before your visit.)
Dunedin may not be known for its flashy stores and over-the-top and upscale brands, but the city is full of many hidden gems and eclectic boutiques that are well worth spending money on. From local fashion and jewelry designers to vintage shops, these shopping districts are the ones you need to visit:
Edinburgh Way: Located in upper George Street, Edinburgh Way is dubbed a shopping haven due to its large concentration of designer shops – from local Dunedin designers to international labels.
Lower Stuart Street: If you’re looking for anything antique or vintage, your best bet is Lower Stuart Street. The street is lined with vintage shops and independent boutiques that offer unique art, designer handbags, jewelry, collectibles, and more.
Moray Place: Moray Place is teeming with fashion shops, contemporary design boutiques, jewelry stores, and art galleries. Some of the iconic shops in the area include The Preservation Society and Vull Design.
Dunedin has an impressively diverse dining scene that features both local and international favorites. If you’re unsure about what to try and where, here are some of Bounce’s recommendations for top dining spots in the city:
Modern New Zealand cuisine: Kiwi cuisine is mostly focused on sourced local ingredients and seasonal options. One of Dunedin’s most famous modern NZ cuisine restaurants is No. 7 Balmac, known for its smoky-flavored dishes. Other contemporary NZ cuisine restaurants in the city are Prohibition Smokehouse, Bacchus, Vault 21, Salt and Starfish Café and Bar.
Seafood: Due to its location by the harbor, it’s no surprise that seafood is a major part of Dunedin’s dining scene. For the best seafood in town, no other restaurant beats Plato, which is a favorite among locals and tourists. Other seafood joints to try are Carey’s Bay Hotel, Fishhook and Best Café.
European cuisine: Dunedin has a strong European influence and this reflects in the city’s selection of authentic European restaurants. Some must-try spots include Two Chefs (French), Scotia (Scottish), and Esplanade (Italian).
