Trip Advisor – Things to do in Dunedin

A region of extremes, Otago’s stunning landscapes stretch down from the green farmland of the coast and across to the dramatic, weathered hills of
Central Otago.

Explore the history of the region, from gold-miners to grape growers. Hire a motor home, or cycle the Central Otago Rail Trail to investigate the more remote areas and absorb the spectacular scenery on offer.

Central Otago is renowned for its wine – in particular, Pinot Noir. Vineyards offer cellar-door tastings and a relaxed dining environment where you can try fresh, local produce.
