Moray Place

People milling about on Moray Place in Dunedin.

A forward-thinking early surveyor left the central part of Dunedin bare of buildings, making Moray Place a favourite spot 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 after completion due to disgruntled residents being woken up by noisy trucks. Now Moray Place is a popular spot to dance the night away, and it's likely the sound of students partying that keeps neighbours up to the early hours.
