Starting the tour here, learn about the amazing buildings that survive in the center of town. It survives by good luck rather than good planning.

Stop At: Dunedin Railway Station, 3074332, Central Dunedin, Dunedin 9016, New Zealand

The Dunedin Railway Station is the second most photographed building in the southern hemisphere, second to the Sydney Opera House. We go inside the foyer of the station with its Royal Doulton tiled walls and mosaic floor made with approximately half a million pieces. She's currently under works so covered with scaffolding, however they've kindly printed a picture of the building on the outside!
