A visit to Dunedin is not complete without a trip on the Taieri Gorge Railway – one of New Zealand's great train trips.

The train departs daily from downtown Dunedin into the rugged and spectacular Taieri Gorge. Marvel at the variety in landscapes as the train negotiates this narrow and exhilarating river gorge. We offer full commentary, sightseeing stops, friendly staff and a licensed snack bar. This is an all weather trip not to be missed.
