Dunedin Railway Station, Dunedin
(4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Stop at Dunedin Railway Station to witness one of the most striking architectural sites in New Zealand, which displays a mix of styles from Edwardian Baroque to Classical and Neo-Gothic. Make sure to bring your camera when you visit this photogenic attraction, with its dark and white stone exterior and intricate interior featuring a floor covered in nearly 750,000 tiles. A number of sightseeing trains leave from the station, and you can kick back and relax as a vintage train brings you through classic New Zealand scenery, such as the seaside or breathtaking gorges. Tip: if you're visiting on Saturday, a farmer's market in front of the station lets you sample and purchase local produce.
