  • A beautiful gallery within a gorgeous building. I accidentally spent an hour here simply looking around the train station and admiring the artwork. Perhaps the best part was that it is free! This place is worth a visit, even if you are not that into art (like myself).
  • This is a fantastic shop. It features lots of work by local artists at affordable prices. The artists themselves hang out at the shop & work the till so you can occasionally meet the person you're buying from. Really beautiful pieces to buy here. Thoroughly recommended when visiting Dunedin. Go up the stairs from the Railway Station to find it (follow the signs for the sports museum).
