      Dunedin was born out of gold and reached maturity through industry and educational excellence. From New Zealand's largest city by population, to the largest city by area, Dunedin has always held a prominent position in our country.

      The city has always recognised the importance of its heritage and this can be found in the original architecture and prominence of memorials both to our fallen soldiers and to our pioneering forebears.

      We have retained many features of our past, from old tram tracks to Pixie Town. While many of the city's features caused varying degrees of controversy at the time of their inception, they have with patience and constant awareness of changing needs, become much-loved and well recognised city amenities.

      With a population of about 122,000 people, Dunedin is absent of the buzz and fast pace of a large metropolitan city. More people are choosing to settle here, taking advantage of the lower cost of living, the low traffic, low crime rate and the lack of commuting hassles.

      For a city of its size, Dunedin is relatively easy to get around, regardless of what time of the day it is. It has very accessible recreational and cultural venues, great shopping, supermarkets, restaurants, as well as first-rate health care and education.
