Visit Dunedin with Mighway

Hire a campervan in Dunedin


Dunedin, New Zealand, is the principal city in the Otago region and the second-largest city in the country. While not as large or well-populated as other cities in the Otago region, Dunedin is considered one of New Zealand’s main tourist destinations because of its cultural significance and historic beauty. However, Dunedin didn’t start out as the charming and cozy little town it is today. From the 1860s to roughly 1900, it was the largest populated city in all of New Zealand. Today, there are more than 120,000 residents who call Dunedin home. Located on the central eastern coast of the Otago region, the city’s most important economic resource is connected to higher education. New Zealand’s first university, the University of Otago, was established in Dunedin in 1869. Small with a multitude of hills, the city was founded by immigrants who hail from Scotland. That legacy and heritage can still be felt today. Nearly all of the local street names come from names of streets in Edinburgh, Scotland. There are also Gothic stone buildings with an impressive display of Scottish Edwardian and Victorian architectural styles. Dunedin’s town center is the perfect place to admire this design work as it is conveniently dense and easily trekked on foot with many exquisite examples of 19th-century architecture to behold. \Gently tucked in the inner corner of Otago Harbour, Dunedin’s spectacular views are second to none. Rugged beaches and raw clifftop landscapes make this city an absolute must-see for any traveler. Here are a few of the top winter tourism destinations in Dunedin. Whether you fancy art, nature or historic architecture, Dunedin has an interesting and varied possible itinerary of things to do, see, savor and enjoy in winter. Travel Dunedin in style with a rented motorhome. Book a camper with Mighway, and let the journey unfold!

Places to Visit near Dunedin


Routeburn Track

While the Routeburn Track may be a shorter multi-day hike, it has some of the biggest scenery. With soaring mountain peaks, huge valleys, waterfalls and jewel-like lakes the track links the Mount Aspiring National Park with Fiordland National Park.The highest point of the track is 1,255 metres above sea level - so the views are simply spectacular.

The part of New Zealand that the Routeburn Track winds through has been shaped by successive glaciations into fiords, rocky coasts, towering cliffs, lakes and waterfalls. Birdlife is prolific through forested sections of the track; native tomtits, robins, fantails, wood pigeons and bellbirds are commonly seen, as well as the cheeky Kea, the world's only alpine parrot.

This is not a loop track and can be walked in either direction; one track end is at the Routeburn Shelter (near Glenorchy) and the other is at The Divide (closer to Te Anau). It is recommended that this track is avoided between May - September, when there is high risk of avalanches.

Penguin Place

This conservation project is entirely financed through guided tours and we would like to thank you for your interest. In the following text you will find information about the Yellow-eyed Penguin and the reserve. This conservation project was established in 1985 by Howard McGrouther when there were only 8 breeding pairs of Yellow Eyed Penguins. In the summer of 2006, we have had 19 pairs breeding in the colony making this a medium sized breeding colony on the South Island. We will take you on a guided tour through the colony for some close-up viewing of the birds. Covered trenches and observation huts will hide us so the penguins will not be frightened and we can observe them going about their daily business unperturbed by our presence.
