When to fly

Dunedin is the main city in the Otago region of New Zealand’s South Island and its temperate Oceanic climate has warm, sunny summers and cool winters with a fair number of sunny days.

Summer, which runs from November to April, is widely agreed to be the best time to book flights to Dunedin. During this season, the particularly popular months are December, January and March. These are considered to be Dunedin’s peak season and the city can become very busy as local school holidays coincide with the increase in international tourism. May and October are shoulder seasons, which is when travellers may be able to find cheaper flights to Dunedin and discounted accommodation rates. During this time you will be able to experience the fantastic scenery in and around the city, which is heightened by the onset of October spring growth or the autumn change in foliage in May.

There is still much to be said for visiting Dunedin during the off-peak months of June to September. The Dunedin Midwinter carnival takes place in June which sees the streets filled with people to celebrate the longest night of the year. The procession features stilt-walkers, dancers, drummers, lantern bearers and much more. Those with a sweet tooth might enjoy a stay in July when the Cadbury Chocolate Carnival comes to town for a delicious and exciting week. The city hosts a variety of activities for this event, including the Cadbury Chocolate Fun Day, Cadbury Fun Run and the famous Cadbury Jaffa Race, which sees Cadbury Giant Jaffas (a classic Kiwi chocolate favourite) hurtle down Baldwin Street, the steepest street in the world.

City overview

The beautiful New Zealand city of Dunedin enjoys a spectacular location on the beautiful Otago peninsula and it’s a wonderful destination for culture-based breaks or outdoor activity holidays. Summer is a popular time for mountain bike and cycling holidays thanks to the mild climate and the long hours of daylight, while wildlife lovers can take the opportunity to see rare yellow-eyed penguins or visit the only mainland breeding colony of Northern Royal albatross in the world.

History and architecture enthusiasts will be in their element – magnificent Larnach Castle dominates the Otago ridge and dates from the 19th century, while other notable buildings include the Municipal Chambers and the Knox Church. Outdoor fans can visit some of the many pristine beaches close to the city and surfers are attracted by excellent conditions. St. Clair beach is one of the most popular and surfers of all levels congregate here.  The Esplanade Surf School offers lessons for beginners, while the superb hot salt pool is the perfect place for those of a less active nature to relax.

Dunedin Public Art Gallery presents lots of interactive events, and peak holiday months always feature plenty of kid-friendly shows. The Hair Raiser Ghost Walk began in 1999, and this unique attraction is now a favourite with visitors who enjoy seeing where famous spectres like the black dog and the Silke were said to roam before finishing up with a nerve steadying dram at the Scotia Whisky Bar.

Getting around Dunedin
