It’s thanks to the forward thinking of an early surveyor that the much-loved central part of Dunedin was left bare of buildings, which in hindsight was a very good decision, as Moray Place now serves as a favourite place to meet up with friends, have lunch in the sun or simply soak up the Dunedin culture.
A fire station built in the 1890s was moved from Moray Place 14 years later due to disgruntled residents being woken up by noisy trucks. However, now a popular place to boogie the night away, it is likely the sound of students partying that may keep neighbours up to the early hours.
