Welcome to DUN, your go-to source for news and stories in Dunedin. Founded in 2021 by Matt Taylor, DUN is a local newspaper that is dedicated to providing high-quality, unbiased reporting on the issues that matter most to our community.

At DUN, we believe that local newspapers play a vital role in our society. They help to keep people informed about what is happening in their community, provide a platform for debate and discussion, and hold those in power accountable for their actions.

Our passion for news and stories is what drives us to do the work we do. We believe that every story has the potential to make a difference in someone’s life, whether it is by raising awareness about an important issue, shining a light on a hidden gem in our community, or simply bringing a smile to someone’s face.

We also believe that local newspapers are uniquely positioned to serve their communities in a way that larger, outlets cannot. By focusing on the issues that affect our immediate surroundings, we are able to provide a level of depth and insight that is simply not possible for larger organisations.

At DUN, we are committed to providing our readers with accurate, timely, and relevant information that helps them stay informed and engaged with their community. Whether you are a long-time resident or a newcomer to Dunedin, we hope that you will find value in the stories and reporting that we provide.

Thank you for choosing DUN as your source for local news and stories. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.
