1. Re: Dunedin or fox glacier

Welcome to the forum Jenny :)

what time of year do you plan to visit?

how many days are you in the South island?

are you driving a car? campervan? taking the bus?

how young are your young children? babies? toddlers? pre-teens?

the more you tell us, the better we can help you.

I would skip the glaciers this trip - wait untl the kids are older.

Wanaka 4 nights, Dunedin 3 and Te Anau 2 works well - each place offers excelllent family entertainment.

Enjoy :)

I would also choose Dunedin over glaciers with kids the ages of yours.
