Dunedin DUD airport transfers & shuttles

Dunedin Airport (DUD)

Known as the 'Edinburgh of the South', Dunedin is located on the South Island of New Zealand and is one of the best-preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere. The city has a strong Scottish culture; the founding settlers came from Scotland, and as the rugged landscape and picturesque hills surrounding the area reminded them of the Midlothian countryside they called home, they named the area Dunedin, deriving from the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh. The New Zealand city is also known for its large student population, great selection of bars and restaurants, and beautiful natural landscape.
