Dunedin is the second-largest city in New Zealand's South Island, and a major gateway for people who want to experience the attractions of this spectacular area.

Visitors to the airport can hire cars and other vehicles from the centrally located Avis New Zealand office.

Dunedin Airport information

Dunedin Airport is located 28 km southwest of the Dunedin CBD, close to the village of Momona. It's the largest of two international airports in the Otago region, the other one being the Queenstown International Airport. The airport features one runway, a single terminal building, five gates, two airbridges, and a range of custom facilities and amenities.

Dunedin Airport is the sixth-busiest airport in New Zealand in terms of passenger numbers, thanks in part to the geographical isolation of Dunedin city. Along with regular flights to Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch, Dunedin Airport also has regular flights to the Australian city of Brisbane.

Things to see and do around Dunedin Airport

Dunedin Airport is located a fair distance from the CBD at 28 km. If you have long enough, there are lots of natural attractions to see around the local area, including Waipori Falls, Brighton, and Taieri Beach and Mouth. If you want to check out Dunedin city, it's a relatively quick drive into the CBD, with traffic fairly good most of the time. Larnach Castle and Olveston House are both worth visiting, as is the Otago Museum and Toitu Otago Settlers Museum.

Dunedin has a lot of great cafes and restaurants to choose from, with multiple bars and pubs also dotted in and around the city centre. Speight’s Brewery is a great place to wet your whistle and enjoy stories about the history of brewing in the Otago region.

If you have a little longer to experience this great part of the world, a visit to Otago Peninsula is a must. Other nearby attractions include Tunnel Beach track, Penguin Place, and the Taieri Gorge Railway. If you're planning to travel west, Queenstown and Milford Sound offer some of the most breathtaking scenery in the entire world.
