Across the Gorge in New Zealand

By Linda Tancs

The Taieri Gorge in the South Island of New Zealand is a deep canyon carved by the Taieri River.  A highlight of any visit is a journey on the Taieri Gorge Railway, a spectacular trek across wrought iron viaducts and hand-carved tunnels over 100 years old.  The historic Dunedin Railway Station is your starting point for this unforgettable scenic ride lasting 77 kilometers.  You can make the return journey to Pukerangi, or Middlemarch, or use the train as one leg of your journey to or from Queenstown and Central Otago on their connecting Track & Trail coach.  Whatever you do, don’t miss the ride.
