There’s a real contrast to this city compared to other New Zealand cities in terms of architecture. You can’t leave Dunedin without getting a photo of the impressive train station or having a nosy around the university campus. As a university city, you can expect some bars with decent-priced drinks. Most of which are in The Octagon part of town. After having a look around the city, I had to go to the Otago Peninsula! This place is a Mecca for wildlife, like seals, sea lions, albatross, yellow-eyes penguins and little blue penguins.
