Dunedin (Ōtepoti in Maori) is the second-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, located in coastal Otago. Although now only by some definitions the eighth largest city of New Zealand in terms of population, it is the fifth largest urban area, as Greater Auckland is composed of four cities. For historical and geographical reasons, Dunedin is still regarded as one of the country's four main centres.
The city stands on the hills and valleys surrounding the head of Otago Harbour. The harbour and hills are the remnants of an extinct volcano. Dunedin is the home of the University of Otago.
