About Dunedin

Dunedin is the 2nd-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the principal city of the Otago Region. While Tauranga and Hamilton have eclipsed the city in population in recent years, it is considered to be one of the four main urban centres of New Zealand for historic, cultural, and geographic reasons. Dunedin was the largest city by territorial land area until superseded by Auckland on the creation of the Auckland Council in November 2010. Dunedin was the largest city in New Zealand by population until about 1900.

The Dunedin urban area lies on the central-eastern coast of Otago, surrounding the head of Otago Harbour. The harbour and hills around Dunedin are the remnants of an extinct volcano. The city suburbs extend out into the surrounding valleys and hills, onto the isthmus of the Otago Peninsula, and along the shores of the Otago Harbour and the Pacific Ocean.

Activities and Programmes

As we have an office in the city centre, many people visit our office and contact us over phone. DMEC is really flourishing.

Besides all the events we conduct regular monthly meetings and social gatherings in the selected places of members which really works to bring a sense of unity among the members.
