Dunedin Railway Station Tours

Known by locals as “Gingerbread George” because of its ornate architecture, the Dunedin Railway Station in New Zealand’s South Island was designed by George Troup and opened in 1906. In those first few years, the station was one of the country’s busiest, with at least 100 trains passing through its tracks each day.

While the station is still in operation, reduced rail traffic means the iconic building serves several other functions, and a tourist train that traverses the countryside via Middlemarch, Palmerston or Pukerangi departs daily from Dunedin. But there’s still plenty to do here without ever leaving the station; the ground floor houses a popular restaurant, and the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame and the Otago Art Society are located on the upper level. 

Practical Info

Dunedin Railway Station is worth a visit anytime of year. Travelers will find a well-stocked produce market every Saturday morning, and in March, visitors can catch the South Island’s fashion show, which is home to the world’s longest catwalk.
