Practical Info

If you're arriving into Dunedin International Airport, there are regular shuttles and buses that will take you the 19 miles (30 km) into town. You can also take a taxi, as well as rent a car.

There are daily buses to and from Christchurch, Invercargill, Wanaka, and Queenstown, including overnight buses. While the train station is in the heart of the city, it is limited to the Gorge Railway, and thus may not be the best choice for regular transit.

Once you're in the city, the Dunedin Bus service is reliable and well-priced, and will get you around to see the city's main attractions. There is also a bus line that goes out to the peninsula, but be warned that they do not go to the tourist locations such as the Royal Albatross Centre. Most buses are handicap-friendly.

You can also rent bicycles to get around town, as the city center is fairly flat, despite the extremely steep hills. Taking a bike is great way to see the Otago Peninsula via Harington Point Road.

Dunedin Shore Excursion: Small-Group Tour of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula
Loved our intelligent and informed driver...his knowledge of the natural world was delightful and since Dunedin was our first stop in New Zealand, gave us a basic insight into the country which was helpful for the entire trip. Fun stop at the beach and also the steepest street in the world. Thank you!

Dunedin Shore Excursion: Small-Group Tour of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula
One of the best excursions we have taken during our tour of New Zealand. Driver/guide was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. Was able to answer a myriad of questions submitted to him by the group. Took us to a small trail which eventually led out to a beautiful beach where we were able to take pictures of a seal basking in the sunshine. Breathtaking views of the coast line and a very satisfying experience.

Dunedin Shore Excursion: Small-Group Tour of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula
Thoroughly enjoyed this small group tour with Oly as our guide, he was very knowledgable and friendly. He took us to some really interesting sights/places around Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula. The highlight was visiting a beach where we saw two fur seals play fighting and were able to get within a few yards for some fantastic photographs. I would recommend this tour.

Dunedin Shore Excursion: Small-Group Tour of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula
This was a relaxing excursion that was all it was advertised to be in the limited time we had in the area at this cruise stop. The transportation was comfortable and the tour guide did a nice job of educating us about the surrounding area. We especially enjoyed the stop at the beautiful beach to stretch our legs and take in the beautiful views.

Dunedin Shore Excursion: Small-Group Tour of Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula
Scot was great and very informative. I would suggest that a short refreshment break would be beneficial. The weather on the day of our tour was awful with heavy rain. Not much Viator can do about the weather
