In its heyday, Dunedin railway station was New Zealand’s busiest, handling 100 trains per day. Nowadays, the only trains serving the station are heritage railway services including the Taieri Gorge Railway and the Seasider tourist train. It is an impressive station built in the Flemish Renaissance style with stained glass windows, a prominent clock tower and a booking hall that features a mosaic floor made from almost 750,000 tiles.

Dunedin is the terminus for the Taieri Gorge Railway, which travels to Middlemarch where there is a connecting coach service to Queenstown. The Seasider runs to Palmerston a couple of times a week.

Dunedin’s train station is on Anzac Street, about a five-minute walk from the Octagon.

    The architecture of the railway station in Dunedin is beautiful, with stained windows, monogrammed tiles and even a small museum upstairs.

    The finest example of railway station architecture anywhere in New Zealand. Get here early in the morning where the light is great for photos and before the tourist onslaught sets in.
