Map of Port Chalmers (Dunedin), New Zealand
Dunedin has many things to do and not every attraction is within walking distance so I recommend a day tour. We booked a day tour with a great company called: Good Company Tours. They pick you up from your ship (so you avoid a $20 return shuttle from the Port Chalmers port to Dunedin city area). From there it takes you to many places: Baldwin Street (the steepest street in the world). It then takes you to the beautiful Dunedin Railway Station and drives you past scenic streets and lets you stop for photos. After you go to Larnarch Castle where you can buy lunch as it isn't included. When you get dropped off at the castle you get 1 hour for lunch at the cafe (the cafe is overpriced and not worth the money) and to look at the gardens. After you get a tour of the castle. They drop you off at the Octagon (Dunedin City Area) which has nice shops, restaurants and cafes (though there are also Dunedin Botanic Gardens, markets, museums and more) then they drop you back to your ship. Anyway Dunedin is really beautiful. Also Port Chalmers has a few cool things to do.
Dunedin is beautiful. The architecture is gorgeous - train station and churches. See the botanical gardens (walking distance from downtown) and the Cadbury chocolate factory. See the free museum next to the train station.

Did Dunedin by bus on our own and went to Cadbury Chocolate, had a great time there then walked around the shopping center before getting the bus back to Port Charmers
Visited the Dunedin Botanical Gardens which were fantastic, rose gardens and the wonderful Heritage Homes in the city.

Don’t get the shuttle bus it costs $20 and a long queue, walk into Port Chalmers , just a short way and catch the local bus number 14 into Dunedin for $6 each. We had fish & chips and booked the seaside train from the beautiful station, a must see. On the way back if you want to they will drop you back at Port Chalmers so you can walk back to the ship . Lovely day out
