If you arrive in Dunedin by air, you’ll pass Mosgiel on the way into the city. This large suburb doubles as a country town for the local farmers.

Mosgiel is part of Dunedin, but separated from the city by hills. It takes its name from Mossgiel in Ayrshire, the farm of poet Robbie Burns, who was the uncle of one of Dunedin’s founders. Mosgiel’s history is interwoven with the wool products industry. It no longer has a woollen mill, but it’s home to one of New Zealand’s largest agricultural research institutes. As an important service town for the Taieri Plains farming community, Mosgiel has a wide selection of retail and service businesses.

The hawthorn hedges, small farms, grand houses, old oak trees, narrow country roads and peaceful countryside here are as close as you’ll get to rural England in New Zealand. It’s the perfect place to explore by car or bicycle with beautiful hidden corners such as Woodside tucked under the hills and the timeless village of Outram – the ideal picnic spot.

Functional facts: Approx. population 6700, wide range of shops and services, international and domestic airport (Dunedin).
