What should I pack when moving to Dunedin?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Dunedin to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Dunedin, it's important to pack a variety of clothing to accommodate the city's temperate oceanic climate. This includes warm clothing for the cooler months, such as sweaters, jackets, scarves, gloves, and hats, as well as lighter clothing for the warmer months, such as t-shirts, shorts, and swimwear. Waterproof clothing and an umbrella are also essential due to the city's frequent rainfall. In terms of footwear, it's advisable to pack comfortable walking shoes for exploring the city, as well as boots for hiking in the surrounding areas. If you're planning on participating in water sports or visiting the beach, don't forget to pack appropriate footwear for these activities too. If you're moving for work or study, remember to pack any necessary work or school supplies, such as laptops, notebooks, and stationery. Similarly, if you're planning on cooking at home, you may want to pack some basic kitchen utensils, although these can also be purchased locally. Don't forget to pack personal items such as toiletries, medication, and any other essentials you use on a daily basis. It's also a good idea to bring any important documents you may need, such as your passport, driver's license, and any necessary visas or work permits. Finally, consider packing a few items to make your new place feel like home, such as photos, favorite books, or small keepsakes. These can help to ease the transition and make your new environment feel more familiar and comfortable," remarked another expat who made the move to Dunedin, New Zealand.
