Mass Transportation System Transportation
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.

  • Amazing views but was a very long trip. We went for four hours and that was more than enough. Once you have gone one way you can't wait to get back. There was only so many photos of the scenery you could take. Not a bad price for 2 $125.00 for us both.
  • Friendly staff, but the scenery here just can't compare with that in the West coast. I would say if you've got the time and money, go for it. If you're on a tight budget or schedule, the trip doesn't pay off.
  • A very nice old station. Especially the mosaics of the tile floor are very special. You can also leave for some very beautiful train trips.
  • One of the most photographed buildings in New Zealand and an absolute must do visit in Dunedin. Inside the entry hall the mosaic tile and figurines are top class.
  • Was super awesome, Very relaxed and a super horse carriage ride in Middlemarch.
