Taieri Gorge By Train

A visit to Dunedin is not complete without a trip on one of it’s top attractions, the Taieri Gorge Railway. Your exclusive train, with heritage carriages, departs directly from the ship for a spectacular and breathtaking journey through some of the country’s most rugged and dramatic terrain, the Taieri Gorge. Travel along the eastern shores of Otago Harbour before arriving at Dunedin’s impressive railway station. Then, travel to the fertile Taieri Plains, finally ascending the Taieri Gorge.
