          Best place to stay in Dunedin. I traveled down a few weeks back with some friends. We're trainspotters so Dunedin is a great spot with the Taieri Gorge Railway nearby. The hostel was lovely, we got the fire going nicely with wood from the pine...More

          Billy Browns was recommended to me by a friend. Having been there, I can see why she endorsed it so enthusiastically. The steep gravelled driveway leads to a rustic lodge perched high on a grassy hill. The views are staggeringly beautiful. On a fine day...More
