We recommend booking a ticket in advance to guarantee our Coastal Pacific train stops at Blenheim and that a seat will be available.
Blenheim Station building has been converted into a wine bar and restaurant called the Wine Station (it's not a bad place to wait!).
When the train arrives, our crew will greet you on the platform to Check you in, provide you with your seat number, and assist with loading any baggage you have into our luggage carriage.
You can buy tickets for the Coastal Pacific from the crew on the platform at Kaikoura on the day of travel, but we strongly encourage you to Book online in advance. Standing is not allowed, so if all seats are sold out, you will not be able to travel.
- Arrive at least 20 minutes prior to departure.
- All wheeled cabin bags, large bags, backpacks and suitcases need to be checked-in.
- Bring a small day-pack or handbag to carry anything you may need for the journey.
