This city was founded by Scottish settlers in 1848 at the head of the Otago
Harbour. It is built on a limited area of flat land, and housing has spread
over the hills and beyond. It had a sudden increase in wealth when gold was
discovered in Central Otago in 1861. This resulted in some fine buildings
being built in the city . Dunedin has kept its old buildings and many of
its Victorian and Edwardian houses and a walk around the city is of great
interest to anyone exploring the history of architecture.
