Kids Go Free NZ School Holidays 2019

Need a unique adventure to amuse your kids or soothe your parental sanity during the school holidays?

Entertain your precious gems with a mix of fun and education by taking an excursion into some of New Zealand’s most iconic scenery and history.

On the Taieri Gorge excursion, be amazed at the engineering feats of the early pioneers, play a game of Spot the Baby Goats, count the tunnels, look for trout as you slowly cross Christmas Creek, or find Sue the Border Collie, all whilst taking those must-have photos from our open-air platforms. Or just sit back and relax while enjoying a drink or snack from our buffet carriage.

Or if ocean views are more to your liking, take a 90minute trip on the Seasider, which navigates the twists and turns of ther spectacular cliffs above Blueskin Bay, experiencing views which cannot be seen from the road.

Bookings essential. Contact Dunedin Railways’ friendly reservations team to book your seats today.
