Beautiful train station in Dunedin. Very old fashioned with gorgeous tiles. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

This building is reportedly the most photographed in the South Island of New Zealand and it is spectacular. Gardens outside are wonderful and the interior is historic craftwork. Also visit the sport museum inside which has a great set of exhibits.

The station is an amazing place to visit even if you are not taking a trip. The architecture is fabulous. We also visited the Hall of Fame that is situated inside the building and very cheap to enter, great information, well set out. This is...More

Sitting proudly on the edge of town is this magnificent building. Sadly it no longer operates a scheduled commuter service, but a tourist train goes from here. Take the time to have a wander around.

This place is interesting for lovers of railway history. The low rating is only because it was not my thing. The building is nice and has been maintained well.

This building is the most photographed building in the Southern Hemisphere. It houses the New Zealand sports hall of fame and definitely worth a visit.

Simply amazing. Would suggest the 4 hr trip as it is worth it. You can book your tickets online and just land up a few min before the train ride. The cabins provide excellent view of the coastline and is breathtaking!

We were here to get our tickets for the train ride and enjoyed looking around the classic old station while waiting for the train. There were art displays that were nice to look at during our wait.
