Travel Blogs from Dunedin

Edinburgh of the South

A travel blog entry by supergrobi


After a long, long bus ride from Te Anau via Clinton and Gore (no joke), I arrived in Dunedin in the afternoon. I was very exited to visit the city that I had heard and read so much about.
Dunedin is build on hilly ground, so I had to carry and push my stuff through town and uphills to the hostel. I was really happy, when I recognized the …

From the south to the east coast

A travel blog entry by dutchkiwis


Vandaag zijn we van Invergargill naar Dunedin gereden, en dit via de Scenic route. Een erg mooie tocht.We waren vanmorgen om 9:00u wakker geworden van de wekker, we hadden echt even wat slaap nodig na onze inspanningen in de Doubtful Sound.

Lekker even douchen en toen rustig ontbijten, na het ontbijt wilden we nog even wat winkelen in …

Scotland Down-Under!

A travel blog entry by piponthego


Hello all,

A 6 hour journey south saw us 400km further down the south island (you could do that slightly quicker in england eh?) we had passed through many little towns and villages, including ashburton (my mums birthplace - so pretty cool to see that!). Anyway it was far better than the previous couple of journeys we had had. We pulled up …

Gourmet Yoghurt, Chocolate, Ghosts

A travel blog entry by rubin


Jon: I just started the day with some black plum “gourmet probiotic yoghurt”. We love the yog[h]urt here. The New Zealanders are putting their many cows to good use! After the incessant winds, cool temperatures and frequent rains of the Catlins, not to mention the downpours we encountered in Fjordland, it is wonderful to wake up to our …

Riding the waves in St. Clair

A travel blog entry by rubin


Evan: We finally got to go to a beach [St. Clair beach - a popular surfing beach in this area] where we could actually swim - the other beaches had either cold temperatures or rare wildlife. But it is not like the water in this one wasn’t freezing too. It was so cold that before swimming I had to prep myself by running in for 10 seconds, out …

    This review applies primarily to the Carriage House as we were lucky to reserve the entire building and it was gorgeous and a great deal - I doubt we could have found a better place. Centrally located, fantastic facilities, spotless, super staff, designated parking space. We felt like we were staying in a luxury apartment rather than a backpack hostel. We can't speak much to the main facility as we were primarily in the Carriage House.

    A good night's sleep in Hogwarts style

    Hogwartz is a nice and clean hostel with big and comfy rooms and king size beds, if you've booked a shared room. The bathrooms are modern and clean and the kitchen achieves all your needs. Here and there you can find some surprising links to the Harry Potter universe.
    The staff is friendly and helpful. Although the hostel doesn't has a living room (just a dining room with an extra deck), it's still a cosy place to stay.

    Another great city hostel in the south island. The owners are extremely nice and the hostel itself is really cool, located in a 1800s or early 1900s building. Showers and kitchen are great. The only con is that there aren't enough sockets in the dorms...
    Enjoy Dunedin!
