- Te Anau
is the second-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the
principal city of the region of Otago. It is New Zealand's fifth largest
city in population, the largest in size of council boundary area and the hub
of the sixth-largest urban area.
The city stands on the hills and valleys surrounding the head of Octagon Harbour. The harbour and hills are the remnants of an extinct volcano.
As an university city of Scottish heritage, Dunedin, being New Zealand's
oldest city, possesses a unique combination of cultural riches, fine
architecture, and world-famous wildlife reserves on the Otago Peninsula.
From small settlement beginnings, Dunedin has became the centre for the nation's
wealth. Soaring cathedral spires, a magnificent Flemish-style railway station,
fine banks and office blocks, a nineteenth-century castle, old university
buildings and a neo-gothic convent are among the city's architectural treasures.
