A taste of rural New Zealand 

Our Scenic Plus experience brings together the views, the stories, and the flavours of our land, and our Scenic Plus Dining menu is a vital part of that journey.  

Flavours of our land 

Our Coastal Pacific Scenic Plus dining experience is inspired by the vast plains and majestic waters you see through your window. Crayfish, prawn, salmon; these are just a few of the local flavours we are honoured to share with you.

While you cruise across rural farmlands, along pristine coastlines, and among the best vineyards in the world, we'll be bringing vibrant flavours to your table. From breakfast pastries and freshly squeezed orange juice to Marlborough salmon and Sauvignon Blanc. We'll also be serving a selection of local cheeses, canapes, and sweet treats throughout the day.

So rather than simply enjoying the scenery, get a taste of real New Zealand that you can savour now and forever. 


Christchurch to Picton Menu

Our Christchurch to Picton train service departs in the early morning with our Scenic Plus experience serving a light breakfast followed by morning tea. As we glide along the Pacific Coast and through the vineyards of Blenheim, a selection of cheeses is followed by a light lunch of canapes all accompanied by your choice of Marlborough wine or soft drinks.
