The Dunedin Botanic Garden is as large as 28 hectares hosting many open spaces such as Azalea Garden, Rose Garden, Knot Garden, Banstand, Cherry Walk, Herbaceous Borders, Daffodil Lawn and Lovelock Bush. In addition, there’re thousands of floras from local and abroad planted in this public garden.

Located close to the University of Otago, Dunedin Botanic Garden can be reached at the northern part of Dunedin. It opens daily from dawn to dusk and the admission is free.
One interesting fact about Dunedin is the presence of steep streets around the city and the Baldwin Street is well-known as the steepest street in Dunedin as well as in the world.

In the event you’re interest to come and have a look at the Baldwin Street, just head to the residential area of North East Valley.
We initially planned to take a journey to Olveston House after the visit to Baldwin Street, but it’s cloudy after the rain and we’re worried it’ll be raining again. As a result, we cancelled the trip and just stayed in the city. We went to the Octagon, Dunedin Public Art Gallery and First Church of Otago before we ended our trip in Dunedin.
