Dunedin is one of New Zealand's biggest cities and is situated close to the South Island's southeast Pacific Ocean coastline. Dunedin Downtown is at the bottom end of a long narrow Pacific inlet called Otago Harbor. This central district is a vibrant location with refurbished Victorian streets where cheap car hire in Dunedin Downtown supply offices can be found.
Dunedin Downtown, known locally as the Octagon, is home to St Paul's Cathedral, the iconic Municipal Chambers and a Robert Burns statue. Either in or nearby are live music venues, restaurants, cafés, bars, shops, the Otago Settlers Museum and the fabulous old Dunedin Railway Station building.
Driving out of the city with your car rental in Dunedin Downtown visitors will notice picturesque hills and peaks, which were formed by an extinct volcano. Taking the southern route round the shores of Otago Harbor leads out on to the Otago Peninsula and Hoopers Bay.
The world's only mainland royal albatross Colony is at Harington Point, on the tip of the peninsula. Also here is the underground Taiaroa Fortress, where visitors can enjoy treks through historic caves and tunnels.

St Clair Beach is near the track and faces out over the Pacific. The swells here have made it a firm favorite with surfers.
