Escape the bustle of the city at the tranquil Dunedin Chinese Garden, designed in the style of late Ming/early Qing gardens. Sheltered by 4 m (14 ft) walls, wander the paths from courtyard to courtyard, among immaculately landscaped vegetation that changes with the turning of the seasons. In addition to a large lake, the garden features a traditional tea house, serving Chinese teas, steamed buns, and dumplings. Puzzles and games offer mental diversion, while an audio guide explains the history of the Chinese in Dunedin.

  • A must see while in Dunedin.
  • This quant little garden holds a piece of Cantonese Chinese history within. Going counter clockwise, which is part of its culture, you get to enjoy beautiful scenery of Chinese architecture, greenery and sculptures. It has a tea house and a section explaining the history of migrants during the 1800s. You can spend half a day if you dive into Chinese literature or take photos.
