Kaikorai Valley College (High School) is situated on the west side of the city in a large and beautiful natural environment, just 5 minutes drive away from the city centre. Dunedin is a city for young people, and the large student population contributes greatly to the city's colourful and dynamic atmosphere. The central city streets are lined with restaurants, bars and cafes. There are modern shopping malls, boutiques, galleries and weekly craft and farmers' markets.
Dunedin and Coastal Otago is a region of natural beauty overlaid with a fascinating cultural history, often referred to as the eco-capital of New Zealand.

The Otago coast stretches from the Waitaki north of Oamaru to the mighty Clutha River south of Dunedin. A must see are the mysterious Moeraki boulders.

Start at the north. New Zealand's Waitaki district is a place of haunting natural beauty with green pastures and small picture-book fishing villages. Stop in at Oamaru and look at the historic whitestone architecture, an amazing townscape that towers over a modest community.

Dunedin is New Zealand's city of the south. Known as the Edinburgh of New Zealand, it wears its Scottish heritage with pride. Surrounded by dramatic hills and at the foot of a long harbour, Dunedin is one of the best-preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere. The accommodation is good and plentiful; equally so, the natural attractions. On Dunedin’s doorstep you will find incredible wildlife including the world’s rarest penguins and, at Taiaroa Head, the world’s only mainland breeding colony of Royal Albatross.

Head further south, and you join the Southern Scenic Route, a must-do of the South Island that follows the wild coast down to Invercargill and then north-west to Manapouri and Te Anau.
