Dunedin's Train Station

Dunedin?s Old Train Station was built in a Renaissance-Flemish style between 1904 to 1906. George Traup, the engineer that built the station won the British Architecture Union Award and was crowned as a knight as well. The building is an impressive combination of black basalt stones and white chalkstones.

Tunnel Beach

Approximately at 1870 the initiator and politician John Cargill instructed to mine a tunnel through the coarse sand cliff, so that his family could reach the beach near their home. The rumors are saying that he gave the tunnel to his daughter as a birthday present. The tunnel enabled them a private approach to the beach.
