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.
