South Dunedin

Is a very diverse place. Definitely the most diverse of Dunedin's suburbs and probably (without checking stats.govt.nz) up there with the most diverse suburbs in New Zealand. The following photos indicate that as this is what the retail area of South Dunedin looks like.

Some though still seem to conceive it as a white working class area from the 1970s that it possibly never was anyway. I have some personal experience of this perception so I know that it can be true even here in Dunedin.

A local school (not too far from the above outlets).

So you get the picture, there's a large group of retired people here too. And although the suburb is one of the poorest in New Zealand there is over near the beach a reasonably affluent quarter as well. It's pretty diverse basically.
