Taieri Gorge Train

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £162.52 GBP / Adult
Feel the rattle of a vintage railcar as it winds up the steep slopes of Taieri River Gorge on an eye-opening journey into the New Zealand wilderness. This is the rugged terrain the ancient Maori called the “Hills of Heaven” and the scenery makes it easy to understand why. Enjoy great views of Otago Harbor and pass Christmas Creek, where legend says a lucky miner found gold on Christmas Day in 1863. Learn about the hearty men who braved this uninviting landscape in search of precious ore. Stop at Pukerangi Plateau for a photo opportunity like no other, and savor lunch onboard as mountains and gorges pass by outside. Your tour includes the bonus opportunity to see Dunedin’s most fascinating building — the Dunedin Railway Station, its exterior elaborately detailed with white limestone and dark basalt. Don’t miss this chance to experience the majestic beauty of New Zealand in old-fashioned style.
  • Taieri Gorge Train: Board a vintage train and enjoy views of Otago Harbor and Taieri River Gorge with lunch served onboard.
