On a recent visit to Dunedin our friends recommended a walk around the city streets to check out the street art.

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 .
