Dunedin, Central Otago - Conference & Function Facilities

Called the Edinburgh of the South, Dunedin is New Zealand’s oldest city and traces its history back to its Scottish settlers. It possesses a unique combination of cultural riches, fine architecture and world-famous wildlife reserves on the Otago Peninsula.

Dunedin has a safe urban hub ideal for conference delegates, with most hotels and restaurants being within easy walking distance of the city centre. In contrast, the Otago Peninsula, only 45 minutes from the heart of the city, is home to some of the world’s rarest wildlife. This adds a wonderful dimension to the options of local activities available for your conference delegates.

Scenic Hotel Southern Cross

The Cross’, as it is affectionately known, has a proud history that dates back to 1883. Extensively refurbished, the hotel now provides guests with an exceptional level of comfort, style and service.

As Dunedin’s largest and most established hotel, with nine function rooms, Scenic Hotel Southern Cross is large enough to cater for business groups, events and conferences, yet personal enough to care about the little details and individualised service that will make your stay memorable. Our extensive conference facilities include the larger Heritage and Cargill Rooms on the ground floor as well as a variety of meeting facilities located at our conference centre on the fourth floor.

Scenic Hotel Southern Cross is within easy walking distance of the Dunedin CBD and Town Hall. The Forsyth Barr Stadium is a 10-minute drive away.
