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.

Our Coordinator: Ainee Cha

Welcome to Dunedin!

I’m Ainee Cha and I’m currently managing a home as a wife, and a mother of two amazing children. I have a profound interest in maintaining a healthy-balanced lifestyle and Dunedin is most definitely a place to call home for its exotic nature. Having said that, my interest has been evolving around holistic wellness… with a growing passion for the mind, body and soul.

I enjoy walking, strolling on the beach, and be surrounded by towering trees, colourful flowers, and listening to the sound of the waves.

The kitchen is my playground; I love cooking and experimenting with food and it’s comforting to watch my kids and hubby dive in to those freshly baked focaccia!

I am very keen to connect with other newcomers and would love to hear from you 🙂
