Dunedin Newcomers Network

About us

Dunedin is best known for its picturesque harbour setting, lively student population and Scottish heritage. It’s the second largest city in the South Island, and is considered one of the country’s four main centres for its colonial history and prominence within the Otago region and the South Island.

Also, make sure to connect with the Dunedin Multicultural Council – they have activities happening on a regular basis! Follow them on their facebook page.
