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.

Spent a very pleasant afternoon on the train recently in May. Great scenery and commentary and nicely restored train. Well worth the money and time.

“A day out in the scenic Otago district”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

It was a perfect winter's day and the views were stunning. The guide let us know what we were approaching and the history around the scenic area.

“Great views”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

What a lovely little gem of a train ride, filled in a cold afternoon winding through the countryside. Lovely scenery and nice commentary along the way explaining about the area.

“choo choo train”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We'd just finished 5 days of riding a bike along the Otago Railway finishing up at Middlemarch and catching the Taieri train from Middlemarch to Dunedin. I would definitely reccommend this train ride. Great seating, friendly train driver and wonderful gorge scenery.
