Owner description: A highlight of your visit to Dunedin is a trip on the Taieri Gorge Railway - one of the world's great train trips and one of Dunedin's top attractions. Departing daily from downtown Dunedin into the Taieri Gorge, this trip travels through some of New Zealand's most beautiful and ever changing scenery which can not seen from the road! With sightseeing stops, on board cafe, outside viewing platforms it is the perfect all weather activity and one of the key attractions in Dunedin - not to be missed.

Really enjoyed this, excellent views all the way, better than the Trans-Alpine train journey to me. Open carriages for photo's etc as well as comfortable seats. A couple of interesting stops on the way.

The staff were humorous and we were able to have a few cheeky drinks. The views were brilliant and the wee stop for a feed was outstanding. The group enjoyed the hospitality of the "locals" and we boogied until the end. Awesome fun!!!

Hi there.
This trip sounds a bit like one of Barndance trips - these have been a popular special excursion over the past 20 or so. They are a lot of fun and are perfect for Christmas work parties.
Thanks for posting!
