Dunedin…

Some interesting architecture in Dunedin, which is the second-largest city in the South Island, and the principal city of the Otago region. Dunedin itself is founded on the remnants of an extinct volcano, and was New Zealand’s largest city in terms of population up until approximately 1900. It is also home to the world’s steepest street, and the excellent Speight’s brewery!

Neither Melinda nor I are particularly great beer drinkers, since we generally prefer wine; however when in Dunedin it is worth visiting the Speight’s brewery for a tour, followed by lunch in the bar attached to the brewery…
