Every of Dunedin’s several precincts provides a different shopping flavour. Are you just after fashionable vintage retailers, stocked with antique treasures, or would you prefer searching more upmarket fashion boutiques and modern artwork galleries? Down below is a quick guide to every from the city’s contrasting boroughs.
Edinburgh Way

Discover a designer shopper’s eden on Edinburgh Way, positioned on higher George Road. Here, the boutiques of iconic Dunedin designers rub shoulders with much-coveted New Zealand and intercontinental labels. Really don’t miss trendy Bellebird Boutique, New Zealand label Ruby as well as the long-established Slick Willy’s, which was developed being a important alternative to ‘the fashion crimes of 80’s department stores’. When you are thirsty, halt for refreshments at Kiki Beware or the legendary Modaks. At the end of the working day, pay a visit to the tiniest bar during the universe, Mou Quite.
Decrease Stuart Road

If eccentric vintage retailers are up your alley, head to Reduced Stuart Avenue and take a look at an eclectic mix of vintage boutiques and unique eateries. Pick up second hand jewellery, designer handbags, unique artwork & more at Finders Keepers, or head to Doodlefish Creative Boutique for quirky gifts and homewares. There’s top notch restaurants on offer below too – Josh Emmet’s Madam Woo opened this month, and joins French Bistro and Jistu as good options for a delicious meal.
Octagon Entertainment Precinct

The heart of Dunedin; the Octagon is the social and entertainment district with the city. While shopping below is limited, it’s a great place for a pint or a glass of wine amidst striking heritage buildings at the conclusion of the working day.
Moray Place

A short stroll from the Octagon, discover a treasure trove of contemporary design retailers, fashion boutiques, artwork galleries and jewellery workshops when you pay a visit to Moray Place. Bright and cheery vintage shop The Preservation Society is teeming with cool threads and glam dresses from the 1920’s, while Vull Design stocks beautiful interior goods. There are also a lot of other hidden gems on this road.

Warehouse Precinct

Undergoing an exciting revitalisation project with restaurants and galleries unique to the city, this entire area is surrounded by the Avenue Artwork trail. The city embraces road artwork, with a growing number of blank walls being transformed into works of art by worldwide artists like ROA (Belgium), Pixel Pancho (Italy), Natalia Rak (Poland) and Mica Still (NZ). View the road artwork map in this article. Investigate the Chinese Garden or stop in for a Bookbinder’s workshop at Dutybound.
Port Chalmers

Rummage for vintage treasures by the seaside at Port Chalmers, a short drive from Dunedin City. Take a look at Ralph Hotere’s sculpture garden, artwork galleries, craft retailers and plenty of vintage boutiques. When you need to rest your legs, kick back and enjoy the local flavours at one with the a lot of great cafes in the port.
