On a recent visit to Dunedin our friends recommended a walk around the city streets to check out the street art.
This is one of my favourites as I’m sure I recognise some of these people! lol
This is all on a wall just before an entrance to a gated car park.
Dunedin has a rich history in the arts so it is great to see this initiative to brighten the skyline and make use of some of the unused wall space.
Many local and international artists have made the most of this opportunity as has the local Dunedin District Council with a Dunedin Street Art Trail being produced complete with map and brief description of each artist and their chosen piece of work.
It is a great way to see the city and open ones eyes to not just the street art but the many beautiful buildings that Dunedin city has and even some of their alley ways.
Next time you’re in Dunedin or if you’re looking at adding it to your itinerary, make sure you allow time to take a walk around to check out the street art trail .
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. They enjoy getting out and exploring the West Coast but also seeing other parts of the South Island whenever they can.
