Ride the rails in New Zealand's spectacular Otago region
Departing from Dunedin's glorious bluestone and stained-glass railway station—built between 1903 and 1906—the Taieri Gorge Railway negotiates tunnels and river gorges, and traverses heritage viaducts across deep and rugged ravines. Return trips to and from the sleepy village of Pukerangi take around four hours, and if you're planning on taking on the cycling adventure of the Otago Central Rail Trail, some trains continue a further two hours to the trailhead town of Middlemarch. Either way, try and sample a Taieri George beer at Emerson's Dunedin brewery. The honey and spice winter beer is crafted by brewer Richard Emerson as a tribute to his late father George who was one of the founders of the railway.
