5 things to do these school holidays with city-based Dunedin Palms Motel

The school holidays are upon us and 4.5-star accommodation provider Dunedin Palms Motel know that this is a great time to showcase the city and all it can offer. For traveling families to the area this means quality attractions complimented by luxury accommodation.

“Dunedin is a beautiful city full of local attractions which the whole family can enjoy. School holidays are the perfect excuse to get to Dunedin and check out what we have here in our city,” says Dunedin Palms Motel owner Karen Greenan.

Due to the excitement around the school holidays, Dunedin Palms Motel have come up with a list of 5 things to do during these school holidays to keep the kids amused and give parents a great experience:

1. The Royal Albatross Centre
Close to the heart of Dunedin Palms Motel and the city itself is the Royal Albatross Centre. Just 31km from the Octagon – which is a 7-minute walk from Dunedin Palms Motel – the Royal Albatross Centre is described as a must-do for any travelers. Visitors will learn about the history of the bird and conservation efforts made to keep the Albatross alive today.

2. Dunedin Street Art Trail

The blank walls within the city of Dunedin have been replaced with stunning street art. Visitors can experience the art on one of the 28 trails available, which take around 90 minutes to complete. It is a visually appealing experience and will keep the whole family entertained for the entire walk!

3. Wild Dunedin Festival
From April 21-25 is the Wild Dunedin Festival. The city is the wildlife capital of New Zealand. The festival celebrates the wonderful wildlife of Dunedin and is educational for all who visit. With several activities and events being available there is something for everyone at this great festival!

4. Cycling Tours
For a family day out, the cycling tours around Dunedin make for a scenic ride. Bike hireage is also available so there is no reason to miss out on these great trails. Whether you ride within the city or along the beautiful Otago Peninsula there is something for everyone to enjoy with the family.

5. Beaches

Along the coast of Dunedin and the Otago region lies many beaches to be enjoyed by the public. Parents can enjoy walking along the sand and enjoy the views while children play and swim in the clear waters. The beaches always make for a great day out for everyone.
