Cruise Control: Gorging Ourselves

Dunedin, South Island, New Zealand

Dunedin was a favourite destination from our, as yet unblogged, first trip to New Zealand. One of the things on our list for our next visit was the Taieri Gorge Railway, so this was the perfect opportunity.

There is a trip you can book from the ship, but that is about $200 more than booking ourselves through the website. So we booked it ourselves.

For the extra money you get picked up on a train that comes right to the ship and travel in new, air conditioned carriages.

We caught the shuttle into town and had plenty of time to pick up out tickets and enjoy the beautiful station
