Dunedin is an amazing place to live and work, and if you were to ask anyone living here, they'll tell you that there's something indescribably special about our city.

From the great outdoors to arts, culture and education, all within 10 minutes of the city centre. Dunedin has so much to offer, so why not come and feel just how special it is?
