Dunedin Botanic Garden

Gardens in Dunedin

Dating from 1863, these 30 hectares of peaceful, grassy and shady green space include rose gardens, rare natives, a rhododendron dell, an exotic bird aviary, a playground and a cafe. Kids love tootling about on the Community Express 'train' (adult/child $3/1) and feeding the ducks (pick up free duck food at the park information centre, open 10am to 4pm daily).
