Dunedin Cruises

Wandering around Dunedin, you may feel as if you’ve somehow been transported from New Zealand into the heart of Scotland! This charming town is located on the South Island’s Otago Harbour, boasting a strong link to Scotland with its architecture and history. The town was settled by Scottish emigrants in the mid-1800s, and today is known for its thriving university and wealth of museums. Explore the natural setting with its sea lions and yellow-eyed penguins. You can also visit historic sites like Larnach Castle, or treat yourself to the chocolate goodies at Cadbury World in this vibrant port.



If you have an interest in fine art, you won’t want to miss the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. Its lobby spans three floors, with an Art Deco style that mirrors the aesthetic of Glasgow architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Inside, you’ll find art and sculpture from local and international artists alike. Larnach Castle is the only one of its kind in New Zealand. It’s positioned on a hilltop just a few kilometres outside of the city centre, with a stately interior designed for William Larnach. The gardens are particularly notable, elegantly landscaped and lush. Have you always wanted to pay a visit to Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory? Dunedin offers the next best thing – Cadbury World. Its café is a heavenly experience for chocoholics, offering decadent
creations along with the usual teas and coffees. If it’s beer you prefer, you can visit Speight’s Brewery to learn more about how New Zealand’s original beer has been produced over the
centuries. Are you up for an adventure? Why not take a ride on the Taieri Gorge Railway, which passes through its namesake gorge. You’ll enjoy fine views of the natural surroundings as you pass through old-fashioned tunnels, and can admire the historic design of this traditional train.
