Insight Guides: New Zealand
One of the most southerly cities on Earth, Dunedin's original inspiration hailed from much farther north. Its name comes from the Scottish Gaelic translation of Edinburgh, and its original settlers were from Scotland. A 19th-century gold rush saw it become New Zealand's boom city, and much of its look comes from that time. Gorgeous Victorian-era buildings dot the city, with many of them given a new lease of life as cafes, organic food shops and small creative businesses.
The surrounding nature is what lures most people to Dunedin – the nearby Otago Peninsula offers arguably the best bird and marine life-spotting in the country – but the city has enough personality in its own right to be worth more than the perfunctory day or two that many visitors allocate to it.
Find your feet
Dunedin's centre is the Octagon – a bizarre hybrid of handsome Victorian buildings, head-scratchingly hideous modern ones, cultural hubs and restaurants. Start there, and head along the shopping strip of George Street, which has its fair share of interesting architecture too.
What to avoid
Baldwin Street holds the Guinness World Record for being the steepest street in the world – trudging up it is seen as an obligatory masochistic rite. Sadly, photos from the top won't convey nearly how hard you worked to get there.
Dunedin's great strength is its access to wildlife and nature. Monarch ( 0064 3 477 4276 ) runs a full-day package, including a bird-and-sea-lion-spotting cruise along Otago Harbour, the chance to see albatrosses nesting at the Royal Albatross Centre (www.albatross.org.nz; 0064 3 478 0499) and the ultra-cute yellow-eyed penguins at Penguin Place. The package costs $240 (Dh697).
Frequently voted one of the best travel destinations in the world, New Zealand is famed for its stunning landscapes, hospitable people, and range of thrilling outdoor experiences. The new edition of Insight Guide New Zealand provides both inspiration and practical guidance for a visit, with its combination of lavish full-color photos of the country's incredible scenery and detailed information on the country's fascinating history, culture, and diversity.
