For a memorable expedition and a change from motorcoach touring, take a ride on the exclusively chartered Taieri Gorge Railway -- a superb example of Victorian railway engineering with its soaring iron latticework viaducts, hand-built tunnels, and splendid stonework and masonry.

Board the train alongside the ship at Port Chalmers and travel through Dunedin, across the fertile Taieri Plains and through the breathtaking Taieri Gorge. The train itself is made up of vintage or contemporary carriages, which bring to life Dunedin's unique heritage, as well as offering you some truly spectacular sightseeing.

A stop at Hindon allows you to enjoy the views and take photographs. A snack and a light boxed lunch are served on board, along with beverages.

At Pukerangi, there will be time to stretch your legs while the train engine is switched into position for the journey back to Dunedin.

At Dunedin's gorgeous Edwardian-era railway station you'll have a chance to snap some photos. Don't miss the stunning stonework on the outside of the building and the custom-designed New Zealand Railways mosaic tiles in the main lobby. This station is truly a work of art.

Re-board the train for the short journey back to the ship at Port Chalmers.

Notes:

A wheelchair accessible carriage is available upon request based on availability.
