The gothic-style architecture boasts of the wealth that Dunedin experienced during the gold rush and both inside and out, this is one of New Zealand’s most spectacular buildings. We definitely recommend spending time in this beautiful building.
The Otago museum explores our natural history with more national pieces compared to the Toitu Settlers Museum. Many people compare the Otago museum to Te Papa in Wellington and there are some great galleries and exhibitions that change throughout the year. Plus its FREE to visit!
Speight’s is one of New Zealand’s most iconic brands and they have been brewing beer in Dunedin for the last 141 years. They have a huge range of beers from the ever popular Speight’s Gold Medal Ale to the light and refreshing Summit Citrus which launched in 2015. Their Speight’s Ale Houses can be found up and down the country and the food and beer is always great!
The Castle and grounds are at the heart of any visitor experience to Dunedin and a must for anyone coming to Dunedin for the first time. There is lots to do here; take a castle tour and hear the amazing story of the Larnachs or explore the magnificent gardens before heading to Ballroom café for a nice hot drink and a lovely cake.
Hunker down at Scarfie haunts the Starters Bar, ReFuel or Malbas. Try the Speight’s Ale House, the Craic, or the Duke of Wellington for a true pint! These and other clubs are found near The Octagon.
