DUN Taieri Hindon Viaduct

Dunedin – Taieri Gorge Train Excursion

Your Taieri Gorge Train excursion begins at Dunedin’s beautiful railway station. Prepare to embark on a scenic journey into some of New Zealand’s most ever-changing, spectacular and iconic scenery.

The Taieri Gorge train trip travels through the Southern parts of Dunedin city until it arrives at Wingatui junction where it turns off onto the Taieri branch. From here the Taieri Gorge railway sneaks across the Taieri Plains and climbs into the Taieri Gorge, a narrow and deep gorge carved out over aeons by the ancient Taieri River.

The Taieri Gorge Train negotiates the gorge with ease as it travels through ten tunnels and over countless bridges and viaducts, stopping or slowing down at various scenic points along the way for photos.

When the journey allows, disembark and stretch your legs and enjoy the best of beauty, peace and quiet that nature has to offer. Alternatively, stand on the open air platforms while the train moves or enjoy a quiet drink and food from our on board cafe while the train manager tells the story of the nature and history of the area in an entertaining and informative live commentary. The Taieri Gorge Railway Dunedin is a true highlight on a tour of New Zealand.
