Coastal Pacific - Picton to Christchurch
Coastal Pacific - Picton to Christchurch

The Coastal Pacific will return 27th September 2019 to 26th April 2020 and will operate daily except Christmas Day.

The Coastal Pacific train operates between the delightful port of Picton - the gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds to Kaikoura - the home of whale watching and onto Christchurch - the South Island's largest city.

Immerse yourself in the rugged coastal architecture of New Zealand. Travelling between Christchurch and Picton, the Coastal Pacific journeys breathtakingly close to the Pacific Ocean, where the roaring sea meets enormous bush-clad mountains. Stop in Kaikoura for the day and experience some of the township’s world famous eco-tourism activities, such as whale watching or swimming with dolphins.

The Coastal Pacific connects with the Interislander Ferry over the summer season, which takes you between the port of Picton and our capital city, Wellington, taking in the magnificent Marlborough Sounds.
