Following an increasing number of potential safety incidents on KiwiRail’s Great Journeys of New Zealand scenic rail services, the outdoor viewing carriages will be closed until further notice while a safety solution is found.
We leave Aoraki / Mt Cook National Park in the afternoon and travel past Lake Pukaki to Lake Tekapo, where you can view the solitary Church of the Good Shepherd and take in the sights of the spectacular Southern Alps mountain range.
We then continue through the diverse farmland of the Canterbury Plains to Christchurch where the tour concludes.
