What you can expect
Embark on a stunning rail trip through the picturesque Taieri Gorge before immersing yourself in the Victorian and Edwardian architecture of Dunedin. Your train journey is filled with magnificent natural and man-made sights that paint a picture of a bygone era.
Enjoy convenient transport to the Dunedin Port, where you board a coach to the Dunedin Railway Station. Take a seat on a cosy train and wind your way through the Taieri Gorge on a historic and charming railway. Travel across wrought-iron viaducts and through tunnels carved by hand more than 100 years ago.
Lush green landscapes and rolling hills stretch as far as the eye can see throughout your train ride. Multiple stops for photo opportunities ensure you have plenty of great shots to remember this pristine environment before your return to Dunedin.
Upon your return to the railway station, settle into a comfortable coach and set off on a commentary-filled tour through the outskirts of Dunedin. Pass by historic homes of wealthy settlers, drive through a university campus and head out to the peninsula for harbour, rural and ocean views.
Drive up Baldwin Street – the steepest in the world – and take in vistas from a lookout point overlooking the city. See a botanical garden and catch a glimpse of a statue of Robbie Burns, a poet and unofficial patron to the arts of Dunedin. Finish by driving down the St Clair beach esplanade and returning to your cruise ship.
