Dunedin is a fab­u­lous city,

Go Travel New Zealand - - Dunedin -

loaded with lots of amaz­ing things to see and do. I be­gan my stay with a trip on the Taieri Gorge Rail­way – op­er­ated by Dunedin Rail­ways and my good­ness, I was not sorry I had. After check­ing into the fa­mous Dunedin Rail­way sta­tion, which is well worth an ex­plore first, I boarded the train for the trip which be­gins in the city. The train quickly passes by the sub­urbs and outer ly­ing ar­eas of the city to ar­rive into the Taieri Gorge it­self. This nar­row gorge with the Taieri River flow­ing smoothly through the mid­dle is noth­ing short of spec­tac­u­lar. With ev­ery twist and turn there is some­thing new to see and the next scene is even more stun­ning than the last. On board the train man­ager gives an in­for­ma­tive and fas­ci­nat­ing com­men­tary and the trains guard and sou­venir sales per­son wan­ders through the train and is full of great facts, quips and witty com­ments. The train also has an on­board cafe with a very nice se­lec­tion of food and bev­er­ages – try the cheese rolls which are a south­ern New Zealand del­i­cacy and the cof­fees pretty good too!
