Famously New Zealand’s most photographed landmark, the ornate details of Dunedin Railway Station has stood the test of time. At its prime, the train station was the nation’s busiest – Dunedin was the main commercial centre by the time it was inaugurated in 1906. While the station is no longer in use, visitors can freely explore this well-preserved architectural marvel and the surrounding gardens that further embellish it.

The Octagon is an eight-sided plaza that’s right at the heart of Dunedin’s central city operations. The area is predominantly pedestrianised, lined with grassed and paved sections, and is home to a number of al fresco bars and restaurants. Several of Dunedin’s most significant landmarks and buildings adjoin The Octagon and a statue of Scottish poet Robert Burns proudly sits in the upper end of plaza.
