Hadn’t been before so keen to see it as we have one in Hastings. Was much bigger than the Hastings one. Loved the ornaments and structures and buildings. Looked very ornate. Recommended to see if in Dunedin

In the heart of the town, right beside the Tuitu museum and railway station is this oasis of peace and tranquility. It is really beautiful and well maintained. A must if you get to visit Dunedin.
