Dunedin, built with the riches of the New Zealand gold rush, is a mix of Edwardian and Victorian architecture, history and modernism, scholarship and relaxation. Located at the mainland end of the Otago Peninsula in the Otago region of the South Island, this city draws heavily on its Scottish roots, earning itself the name "the Edinburgh of New Zealand," while also incorporating contemporary New Zealand culture. Along with beautiful beaches and rolling hills, the Otago Peninsula is known for its wildlife. The peninsula is home to the only mainland Royal Albatross breeding colony in the world as well as breeding colonies for both Yellow-Eyed and Little Blue Penguins.
