Attractions near the Mercure Leisure Lodge
There are plenty of beautiful surrounds to explore from the hotel and the Dunedin Botanic Garden begins just 150 metres from your front door. With almost 7,000 plant species and an abundance of native birds, the Botanic Garden is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the natural beauty that has made New Zealand world famous.
There’s a pretty Winter Garden Glasshouse to discover as well as delicious crepes at the cute eatery Croque-O-Dile Cafe. Alternatively, you can pack your own picnic to enjoy on the lawns. Getting lost for a few hours in this greenscape is all part of the fun of escaping the world while on holiday.
Exploring the past and present
An easy 15-minute stroll down Great King Street brings you to the fabulous Otago Museum, one of Dunedin’s most popular sites. Kids and adults can find plenty to be fascinated by – there’s a Tropical Forest filled with hundreds of live butterflies, a gallery exploring the history and culture of southern Maori life, and an ‘attic’ filled with almost 3,000 historical specimens.
The onsite cafe accommodates for coffee breaks, as does the convenient Atrium picnic area where those who’ve come prepared can enjoy their own packed lunch.
