Most Boring Place: Dunedin #travel

HI All,

Hope you are doing well.

During Covid times, we all suffer from not travelling but in New Zealand due to proper management, we are not in lockdown and we are able to travel free domestically.,… Yay! 🙂

We chose Dunedin as they had the most affordable hotels and unlike my blog title I actually had a great, relaxing time in Dunedin. Below are a few must do’s when visiting Dunedin.

TOP 5 PLACES TO VISIT IN DUNEDIN

  1. Larnach Castle

One of the most beautiful places for the best Insta worthy Photos.

2. Baldwin Street

Baldwin Street, in Dunedin, New Zealand is located in the residential suburb of North East Valley, 3.5 kilometres northeast of Dunedin’s central business district. It is recognised by Guinness World Records as the steepest street in the world.

3. Dunedin Botanic Garden

The Dunedin Botanic Garden is located at the northern end of central Dunedin, in the South Island of New Zealand. The garden is close to the University of Otago and one of the city’s most historic cemeteries, the Northern Cemetery, on a spur of Signal Hill and on the river plain immediately below it. The location of the gardens makes them popular with University students, as they lie between the University and the mouth of North East Valley, which houses a substantial proportion of the city’s tertiary students. The gardens are also easily accessible by road from the city centre, being located close to the northern end of the city’s main business street, George Street, and at the northern end of the city’s one-way street system, part of State Highway 1. A small suburban shopping centre lies close to the Garden’s northern entrance at an intersection known as The Gardens Corner

4. Lan Yuan, Dunedin Chinese Garden

Lan Yuan, Dunedin Chinese Garden, is located in the city of Dunedin in southern New Zealand. It is sited next to the Toitū Otago Settlers Museum close to the centre of the city and numerous other of the city’s tourist attractions, including the Dunedin Railway Station and Queens Gardens.

5. Dunedin Railways

Dunedin Railways is an operator of a railway line and tourist trains based at Dunedin Railway Station in the South Island of New Zealand. The railway is a council-controlled trading organisation owned jointly by the Dunedin City Council and the Otago Excursion Train Trust. On 20 April 2020 the company announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic in New Zealand, it mothballed its track and equipment. The company said up to 80% of its revenue came from international tourists. The mothballing could affect up to 51 jobs.

These five locations were definitely insta-worthy and a must do when visiting Dunedin.

These are the more relaxing activities however, if you are into fitness there are plenty of hikes and long walked around in Otago 🙂

Kind regards,
