No better way to see the country side than on a great rail adventure, this goes from the East to West coasts if you catch it in Christchurch with spectacular viaducts and 19 tunnels this trip takes about seven hours one way. You can either stay in Greymouth and return the following day as I have done in the past or return the same day, there is time for a quick look around the coastal fishing / coal mining town before returning.
We booked online and requested forward facing seats for both directions with a table.
Winter is by far the more scenic to complete this with snow covered Alps.
