Situated in the midst of jaw-dropping, snowy-peaked, mountain ranges that tower over the clear-blue Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown’s beauty will capture your heart within moments.
Home to New Zealand’s first University, The University of Otago, Dunedin is one of the country’s four main cities mostly due to its superiority in cultural, historical, and educational factors. This city has quite the impressive expanse of architectural feats, making it the perfect place to walk around and sight see.
