The landscape surrounding the Taieri Gorge Railway is very beautiful. It also presents the history of the region with the many viaducts, cottages, and more. A very nice and picturesque ride that we enjoyed a lot.
Travelled on a slightly damp and cold October morning. The views were stunning and, as mentioned in other reviews, you can catch them on the way down if your view is obscured in the first half.
The commentary was very informative and delivered in typical...More

Had just completed the Otago Rail Trail. Took the Taieri Gorge train to Dunedin.

Hi - the trains that depart from the wharf are part of the Cruise Ship shore excursion orgainised by the ship. If you would like to join this tour you will need to book through your shore excursion desk. Note the shore excursion from the ship is different from our usual service in that you get your morning tea, lunch and other extras all included.
There is usually a public train but you will need to make your own way into the city. You can book these on line on our website.
Either way - we look forward to having you aboard!
