Dunedin

Dunedin, which is Celtic for Edinburgh, is the fifth largest city in the world in terms of geographical size. Home to the University of Otago, the only breeding colony of Northern Royal Albatross, the steepest street in the world, the only authentic Chinese garden in the Southern Hemisphere, the first public art gallery in the country and so much more, ‘Dunners’ is a city full of surprising attractions, friendly people and food and drink that showcases the very best of what the bountiful region has to offer.

Neighbourhood - Rotorua

Fairy Springs

Only a five minute drive from the township’s main drag, Rotorua’s wild suburb of Fairy Springs offers a treasure trove of local gems worth sniffing out. From the sweeping hilltop views to the quiet retreat of the bush, Mother Nature’s finest is complemented by a quirky collective of businesses sprinkling an extra helping of charm throughout the streets and forest floors.

Sure, you may be able to count the street names on one hand, but this neighbourhood manages to squeeze in an eclectic offering to tickle all fancies. Swing from treetops and mountainsides, mosey into boutique studios, experience a traditional hangi, taste local wines and tuck into a plant-based brunch. Adrenaline junkies, culture fiends, spa buddies and forever-hungry foodies – come one, come all!
