On my last day in Dunedin I finally got the chance to have a look around before the sun disappeared. Dunedin has a very pleasant vibe, laid back and full of old historical buildings. Kind of reminded me of Europe. Trivia: Dunedin is the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh. So a piece of Scotland in New Zealand then.
I’ve been told that the Railway Station is one of the most photographed buildings in NZ. It certainly is pretty. I like it better in daytime.
The First Church of Otago is an imposing Gothic structure just off the Octagon. Very tranquil grounds and there is a little museum/exhibition inside showing photos of early Dunedin.
Last but not least, Speights Brewery! Unfortunately I didn’t have time to do a proper brewery tour… I got distracted with the Lego Exhibition at the Art Gallery instead. Maybe next time!
