Overview

In Dunedin, the most popular attractions are found within 30 minutes of the city centre. See the best it has to offer on a Dunedin Hop on Hop off Bus tour in New Zealand. Regular circuits come by every 20 to 30 minutes, which you can time to sync with the arrival of your ship. You will also enjoy free time in Dunedin on this tour.

The bus stops on the following locations:

  1. The Octagon (for St Pauls & Town Hall)
  2. George Street (known for its shopping)
  3. Knox Church (for Olveston House)
  4. Baldwin Street (the world’s steepest residential street)
  5. Botanic Gardens
  6. University of Otago
  7. Otago Museum
  8. Railway Station (for Otago Settlers Museum)
  9. Speight’s Brewery (for the Casino)
  10. The Octagon (end of circuit)

To do the full circuit, the buses take about one hour. Transfers to and from Port Chalmers included.

Guests are welcomed at the port. Transport is air conditioned, with full commentary during the tour.

Departure Times

From Port Chalmers: Departs from near the gangway, generally every 30 minutes from 8:45am to 10:30am, depending on the ship's arrival time. Dunedin Hop On Hop Off Bus departures and return transfers for late ship arrivals will be adjusted to fit in with the ships arrival and departure times.

It is about a 25 minute drive from Port Chalmers to the first stop at the Octagon.

From the Octagon: Trip leaves from the Octagon at 10:30am. With extra departures every 30 minutes (busy days), or every 60 minutes (quiet days)

From Dunedin to Port Chalmers: Generally every 30 minutes from the Octagon in central Dunedin from 2:30pm to 4:45pm. Again this varies with the ships departure time. Your bus driver will advise times for return to your ship. At the Octagon there is also a tour co-ordinator, who will help schedule in your return transfer, to make sure you get back to the ship in plenty of time.

Note: The Dunedin Hop On Hop Off Bus only starts on days when a cruise ship is in port. On these dates, people not coming in on a cruise, can start from the Octagon.
