A fabulous chance to see a part of Otago not accessible any other way. The trip was great - the staff friendly and lots of chances to move around and view the track and views from outside.

I did this return trip on a really miserable day.

This journey brightened up such a miserable day.
Going back in time, to passenger carriages of yesteryear, in comfortable surroundings, of well maintained carriages.
Our journey was a run up to Pukerangi, and return. We had a informative commentary, about the history of the area as we passed by.

A good guard, made our trip all the more pleasant, with some witty stories.
The view from the carriages seemed to favor the one side of the track, which was easily solved by been able to find a better seat.
The cost is $91.00 return, which is getting expensive.
But this trip is one that you need to do, just to experience the history, and see how people lived in the last century.

A great 4 hour trip out of Dunedin up the Taieri Gorge. Easy online booking system. We felt a bit cheated that it cost another $10 to park the car for 5 hours in the station car park - a shame that a parking ticket can't be included in the quite costly train ticket deal. The staff on the train were great and we had tasty sandwiches, crisps and coffee from the buffet car. Excellent commentary about what we could see from the train.

This is a 4 hour train trip that takes you across amazing 100 year old bridges and viaducts and along tracks high above roaring river gorges. The scenery is spectacular and the train staff welcoming and friendly. I had no complaints at all.

This is a great journey for a clear day. The train ride is a four hour round trip, and takes in spectacular scenery along the way. There is a snack bar on board, and you can take your own food as well. The trip dovetails nicely with the morning city tour.
