Flagstaff Sunrise

by Insiders Dunedin

Wednesday morning, 25/03/2014 we decided to rise early and set off to Flagstaff just after 5.30am, in search of a famous #dunnerstunner setting. Flagstaff summit looks out over the city over Dunedin and during the day can be quite the trek to reach, in pitch black... a battle. Though what waited at the top was this sight, something we would do all over again in a heartbeat. See what you think.

Here is a little bit about Flagstaff.

Flagstaff, known in Māori as Te Whanaupaki, is a prominent hill overlooking the northwest of the city of Dunedin. Together with Mount Cargill, which lies to its northeast, it dominates the skyline of the city. Flagstaff lies seven kilometres to the north of Dunedin's city centre.

Flagstaff rises to a height of 666 metres, and is part of the rim of the Dunedin Volcano, a long-extinct volcano of which the crater forms the Otago Harbour.
