Taieri Gorge Railway is one of the World’s great train trips and a highlight of your rail trail experience.
The Taieri Gorge Railway is the only section of Otago Central Railway that remains so an excellent way to begin or finish your rail trail experience – scenic, spectacular and riddled with history and nostalgia. With a full commentary, viewing platforms and a licensed cafe and bar, this will be a trip you will not forget.
The train runs daily throughout the year – twice a day most days over the summer season (October to April). On Fridays and Sundays the train trip extends to Middlemarch - every other trip is to Pukerangi which is 21km from Middlemarch. On these days it is easy to book a shuttle transfer between the two destinations and this can transport you and your gear. And it is a nice ride for you and your bike if you are still up to it!
