Dunedin is the second largest city in the South Island and had reinvented itself as a heritage city due to its characteristically Victorian style architecture.

A city with industries that include fashion, bio-technology and engineering whilst also supporting the development of local music, Dunedin strives to explore all areas of life and do well. It is very community driven, with mass university crowds and a strong visual arts crowd as well as increasing numbers of sporting teams and musicians.
