A comprehensive illustrated guide to Dunedin’s wealth of places to explore. These places range from historic buildings, the botanic gardens, bush and hill walks, unique rock formations, coastal walks, seal and yellow-eyed penguin habitats and wild tussock lands. All are less than an hour’s drive from the central city.

Over 70 tracks are described in detail and illustrated with over 40 maps and 350 photos. There are at least 25 new tracks which have not been described in previous guides. Along with other options described and the super detail on the maps this guide is designed to make readers jump out of their chairs and go somewhere new.  A descendant to the previous Dunedin guide, “From Sea to Silver Peaks”, this entirely new guide continues a tradition of providing high quality and detailed information.
