About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Dunedin Railway Station, 3074332, Dunedin, 9016, New Zealand

After meeting your guide in the private tour meeting area at port, we start your journey by travelling to Dunedin's most photographed building - the city's Railway Station. Completed in 1906 at a time when Dunedin was the wealthiest city in New Zealand - this Renaissance Revival masterpiece provides a grand start to your Taieri Gorge Railway trip.

After taking your reserved seats, you will enjoy a 2 hour train ride through the southern suburbs of Dunedin, across the Taieri plains, and into the scenic Taieri Gorge.

The train is air-conditioned, with tea/coffee facilities and toilets on board. Enjoy the open air viewing carriage while the train slows for those all important photos. A full commentary about the history and geography of the area is also provided by your on-board guide.

At Pukerangi you will disembark and be met by your driver for the return drive back to Dunedin. Enjoy seeing a different route as we traverse the Otago countryside.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: The Octagon, Dunedin 9016 New Zealand

Back in Dunedin we will enjoy the historic sights of the city. Once New Zealand's largest and wealthiest city due to the Otago gold rush of the 1860's, Dunedin still boasts some impressive historic architecture.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: University of Otago, 362 Leith Street, Dunedin 9016 New Zealand

On our way to Baldwin Street we will see Otago University - home to over 20,000 students. New Zealand's oldest university - it was founded by just 3 professors in 1869.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Baldwin Street: The Steepest Street in the World, Baldwin Street, Dunedin 9010 New Zealand

Last stop before we take you back to the port is Baldwin Street - the steepest street in the world. See how far you can walk up, and get amazing photos that seem to defy gravity.
