Destination and venues 


An endearing city of classical architecture and Scottish charm, Dunedin prides itself on being New Zealand’s centre for learning, heritage, art and culture. It is also the commercial hub of the Otago region and the gateway to the diverse wildlife of the Otago Peninsula. Amongst Dunedin’s attractions are the fine examples of unspoiled Edwardian and Victorian architecture, the close proximity to the Otago Peninsula’s rare wildlife and stunning coastal beauty. The vibrant city centre is compact, with restaurants, cafés, hotels and accommodation within easy walking distance.


Indulging in what Dunedin City has to offer, the 30th NZSTA conference 2019 will be held at The Regent Theatre, with additional seminars and the exhibition being housed at the Dunedin Centre and Dunedin Art Gallery, all within a two minute walk of each other 


The conference dinner will be held at The Edgar Centre, a 5-10 minute coach transfer. NZSTA has arranged return coaches departing from the Octagon and selected hotels. 


Daily flights are available between Dunedin and the three major centres; Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Connecting flights are also available to and from the regions.
