Ōtepoti | About Dunedin

Dunedin is a great little city with a big town feel and well-known for its southern hospitality. Outside of work, you will find life in Dunedin to be very easy with its affordable living, great schools, laid back lifestyle and world-famous wildlife on the Otago Peninsula. This compact yet vibrant regional city has plenty of energy, which is to be expected with it being a university town. This sustains great activities such as theatre, stunning gardens, art galleries, live-music and a diverse selection of restaurants and cafés. Central Otago is a notable holiday destination and many outdoor recreation opportunities are easily accessible from Dunedin. Many of our staff combine a hospital career with care of life-style blocks, pursuit of sporting or equestrian interests, viticulture or even farming.
