Not so long ago, Dunedin’s Warehouse Precinct was a part of town few would bother to venture to.
The area a few blocks south of the Octagon was once the commercial heart of the city, back in the gold rush days when Dunedin was the largest and wealthiest city in New Zealand. But over time, the grand old buildings had been neglected, turned into shabby student flats or car parks.
In recent years, the area has undergone a major revitalisation – and like New York’s Meatpacking District, the Warehouse Precinct has been transformed into a buzzing destination. Walls have been splashed with street art, buildings have been restored to their former glory and new businesses have moved in.
It’s also become a foodie haven, home to everything from boutique bakeries to microbreweries, from burger joints to fine-dining spots. Here’s a guide to eating your way around the Warehouse Precinct.

🎧 We've been enjoying listening to an audiobook "Three Feet From Gold" by Greg Reid & Sharon Lechter. It's a modern day version of Napoleon Hill's classic "Think And Grow Rich" written to share the wisdom he acquired after interviewing the most successful business people in the United States ~100 years ago now. A journey that began when meeting the steel industry business tycoon Andrew Carnegie.
🥇 "Three Feet From Gold" is full of pearls of wisdom from people who have created success in their lives. The consensus from successful goal achievers is pretty much don't listen to the OPINIONS of those who have not created success in the area you are interested in doing so (yet we do 🙄).
