Rail Tour Tour
Hop on a vintage railcar and see for yourself why a 4-hour scenic trip on the Taieri Gorge Railway is the highlight of a Dunedin vacation. Traveling by train, you'll see hidden corners of Dunedin' countryside, which cannot be seen from the road. Listen to the onboard commentary to find out how, when, and why the railroad was constructed. The sightseeing stops along the route will give you enough time to admire top attractions around "Edinburgh of the South."

Where to stay in Dunedin

Many of the accommodations in Dunedin are based around the central George Street thoroughfare, including a wide range of hotels and hostels. Rental apartments represent a fine way to stay in Dunedin, and may appeal more to those wanting to stay on the move or take in the town and the surrounding landscape at their own pace. Campsites situated to the north and east of the town center give you more economical options, while motels cluster along the main highways, convenient if you're coming by car.
