Dunedin to Middlemarch or vice versa One Way Journey
Dunedin - Middlemarch - Dunedin Return Journey
Once a week in Summer (Some exceptions due to Cruise Ship visits, October to April) and once a week in Winter (May to September) the train extends its journey to the very end of the railway line to Middlemarch, a lovely example of a country railway town and the beginning of the Otago Central Rail Trail.
Dunedin to Pukerangi or vice versa One Way Journey
Dunedin - Pukerangi - Dunedin Return Journey
The train runs daily to Pukerangi, a peaceful outcrop out the other side of the Taieri Gorge. If you are worried that you will not see all the scenery on this trip then don’t; this tour allows you see all the best bits the trip has to offer. This trip will take four hours and is our most popular tour!
