A Photo Tour of Dunedin

Welcome to a photo tour of a few parts of Dunedin!  Dunedin is a very large city land wise and is made up of many diverse suburbs.  Population wise, Dunedin has about 100,000 people living here year round and about another 25,000 students who come for the academic year.  Here are some photos from St. Clair, the "inner city" as they call it here (also known as downtown), Maori Hill, and the Otago Peninsula.

The Fortune Theatre.  I hope to go see some plays here!

Walking up to Maori Hill, a very good work out.

Pathway through the trees to get to Maori Hill

A road ending in a staircase?  This reminded me of Juneau!
