Tapping into the good stuff
If you appreciate a good brew, you’ll love a visit to Speight’s, a famed local brewery that’s been making beer on-site for over 120 years. Conveniently, it’s just a 4-minute walk from your hotel.
A tour of this ‘gravity-fed’ brewery (thanks to the site’s steep incline) will introduce you to the history of beer and the process of making it on-site. You’ll also discover what makes Speight’s beer unique.
A natural spring under the site provides fresh water for delicious beer and free tap water for public access 365 days a year – and that’s just one fascinating fact you’ll pick up. But it wouldn’t be a tour worth taking without a few samples, and you’ll have six to try, rounding out your beer education perfectly.
Although there’s plenty to explore in downtown Dunedin, it’s worth hopping aboard to experience the stunning train ride that will take you out of town for a few hours.
Beginning at Dunedin railway station, the Taieri Gorge railway snakes its way through pristine mountains and gorges, over bridges and through tunnels. You can experience this majestic scenery from the comfort of the modern train interior or from the open-air platform on those sunny Dunedin days. One of the world’s great train rides, this is the perfect all-weather, all-ages activity for those looking to experience the natural beauty that has made New Zealand famous.
