Well worth a walk-through. Beautiful from the outside, pretty small inside, but there is a local art gallery upstairs. Still, there is no cost to roam through!

Considering the prominence of this iconic Dunedin Landmark the staff were surprisingly Indifferent to the opportunity they have to sell train experiences to the public. I ventured in several timessages and each time left non the wiser as to what if anything was on offer.

I did not know that this building is a train station before I came closer. It is a very beutiful building. It is walking distance from the Octagon and settler museum.

Dunedin Railway station is one of the first stations functional in New Zealand. Constructed during 1903-06 with white omaru stones in gothic style. You must see to believe the perfection even as of today. You have a beautiful garden outside to sit and relax.

General visit. The stained glass window and tiling are amazing. The platform was fun for the children. They especially liked the big clock.
