    Things to do in Dunedin

    • Visit Larnach Castle
    • See local wildlife
    • Visit Port Chalmers
    • Do a brewery tour

    Dunedin takes its name from the Scots-Gaelic name for Edinburgh (Dún Èideann), which translates as 'Hill fort of Edin'. As such a strong Scottish heritage is woven into the Otago city, with Larnach Castle being a fine example.

    Built in 1871 by William Larnach, who was born to Scottish parents, the castle is just 20 minutes away from the city centre and is a wonderful option for a day out, with mesmerising views of the Otago peninsula.

    If Victorian architecture isn't your thing, you might prefer a wildlife tour, either on land or sea, to see the abundance of rare species which live in the region. Dunedin is known as the wildlife capital of New Zealand, with a variety of penguin species, albatross and kiwi living in the Otago area.

    Sight-seeing can, of course, be thirsty work and you can tend to that by going on a tour of one of the local breweries, such as Speight's or Emerson's craft brewery.
