Explore the North Island with the Northern Explorer
The Northern Explorer journeys an epic 675km through the heart of the North Island to connect the quaint harbourside Capital of Wellington with the sprawling cultural metropolis of Auckland. Sit back and watch the sparkling Kapiti Coast, ancient woodland and rolling meadows, the volcanoes of the Central Plateau, and the vast plains of Waikato all roll by. Find out more about the beauty of the Northern Explorer.
Travelling is a Breeze with Coastal Pacific
Unfortunately the Coastal Pacific will not be running for the remainder of the 2016/17 season due to significant damage sustained to the track between Kaikoura and Blenheim during the 2026 earthquake.
The Coastal Pacific is expected to return in early 2018 and will run year round.
Discover the West Coast with the TranzAlpine
Acclaimed as one of the world's greatest train journeys, the TranzAlpine train connects the gorgeous sunny East Coast with the dramatic glacial West Coast by climbing through the Southern Alps from Christchurch to Greymouth. This journey also makes a memorable day out from Christchurch.
