A delightful train ride on a historic line of track gives you a spectacular view of the picturesque coastline north of Dunedin. As you rumble over high cliff tops and trundle through seashore villages, look out and appreciate the wild beauty of this stunning stretch of country.

Train travel allows for a unique way to appreciate the South Island's natural surroundings. After you set out from Dunedin's magnificent railway station, ride up around the natural Otago Harbor—regarded as one of the most charming in the world—to the charming Port Chalmers, where you begin to climb the cliffs for panoramic views of the ocean and coastline stretching into the distance.

Along the way, the train manager is on hand to point out local points of interest such as Hui Te Rangiora Church, and to provide interesting commentary on local history as you move along the Pacific Ocean into the splendor of Blueskin Bay. With its stunning beaches and verdant forest, this is one of the route's most photogenic spots.

The farthest point of your journey is the highway town of Palmerston. Wander the dusty streets and explore its rustic charm.
