This is a must see in Dunedin - so beautifully restored to all its glory, the station building and its gardens are very impressive to see.

Fantastic building, historical building, very well maintained and an asset to the city and to the region. Went for the daily train ride through the gorge and that was also a great afternoon with spectacular scenery and commentary.
