Transportation near University of Otago

Dunedin has its own airport, which takes domestic flights from across New Zealand, and a limited number of Trans-Tasman services. Driving down, or taking a connecting flight from the international airports at Christchurch or Wellington is usually the easiest option if you’re traveling from further afield. The city's Flemish renaissance-style railway station is an impressive building, but serves little purpose for serious rail travel. Sightseeing trains - which traverse the sheer drops of the Taieri Gorge - travel out to Middlemarch from the station, however, and it's also an inter-city bus hub.
