Convenience and accessibility are key attributes of Dunedin. It is an extremely easy city to navigate your way around in.

By Air

Dunedin International Airport is an easy half hour drive from the city centre.

Getting to and from the city

  • Airport shuttles, seating around 8-10 people, cost from $25 per person for door-to-door service. This option is best booked the day before travel to ensure a seat is reserved for you.

  • Taxis cost approximately $80 to the city centre. Dunedin's compact size means that a taxi fare from one stop on your itinerary to the next is affordable. Or even better - often an easy walk!
