About Dunedin

Dunedin lives with and values its heritage and is home to some of the best examples of heritage architecture in New Zealand. We have fine examples of working heritage like Speight’s Brewery, the Gasworks Museum and the Taieri Gorge Railway. We welcome visitors to the stately homes Larnach Castle and Olveston, and showcase standout Victorian and Edwardian buildings like First Church and Dunedin Railway Station.

Dunedin’s Scottish roots are celebrated, piping and marching are strong in the city. Gardens, public and private, adorn Dunedin and provide year-round interest. Two of them - Dunedin Botanic Garden and Larnach Castle Garden - are Gardens of International Significance.

Dunedin is also home to incredible wildlife including; penguins, albatross, seals, sea lions, kiwis ... and more!

Introducing Dunedin Group

The Dunedin Group of AAPNZ welcomes all Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Office Managers, Administrators, Receptionists, Secretaries, Accounts and Payroll Officers, to join the association. In our busy administrative roles, we work hard to provide a high standard of service and support for our organisations, but we also recognise that we need support too.

The Dunedin Group relaunched on Administrative Professionals Day on Wednesday 26 April 2017.  They will meet regularly and have guest speakers who will cover a wide variety of topics that are of interest to administrative professionals. During these meetings there is always the opportunity to share with each other your experiences, knowledge and skills, while socialising with like-minded professionals and make new friends in the process!.  Christchurch is where the closest AAPNZ Group is situated and information regarding their meetings are available on the website under Christchurch Group.

Our passion is to help you develop your career and provide you with the tools you need.  Our members receive a monthly e-newsletter from the National President, and are kept up-to-date through the AAPNZ Facebook page.
