New Zealand’s City of the South gets a chocolate coating in July as people of all ages enjoy a week of chocolaty fun at Dunedin Cadbury Chocolate Carnival.


Dunedin Cadbury Chocolate Carnival 2017

This annual carnival delights chocolate-lovers with a week of irresistible chocolate events including chocolate tours, chocolate decorating, chocolate painting and chocolate facials, as well as the iconic Cadbury Crunchie Train. The Carnival culminates with the famous Cadbury Jaffa Race. A kiwi favourite, Jaffas are balls of orange sugar-coated chocolate and have been made in New Zealand since 1931. Watch giant Cadbury Jaffas hurtle their way down Baldwin Street in Dunedin – the world’s steepest street. As well as being home to Cadbury World, Dunedin entices visitors with its dramatic setting, fascinating heritage and proximity to incredible wildlife. The city is surrounded by hills and has ocean beaches to the east and the forest farmland of Central Otago to the west. On Dunedin’s doorstep is a magnificent array of wildlife, including the world’s rarest penguins and the world’s only mainland breeding colony of Royal Albatross.  For a small city, Dunedin has a surprisingly wide selection of cafes and restaurants, as well as a theatre, an orchestra, a highly-regarded public art gallery and a ‘writers’ walk’. Known as the Edinburgh of New Zealand, Dunedin is proud of its Scottish heritage and is one of the best-preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern Hemisphere. Whether you’re a wildlife fan, a history buff or a chocolate-lover, Dunedin has something for everyone.
