150 Years of Rail

We offer world-class holiday experiences built on 150 years of rail experience and a thousand kilometres of scenic rail. Our scenic train journeys have been named among the top train experiences in the world. Through the connected rail network of Great Journeys New Zealand, passengers can travel from Auckland in the North through to Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island, experiencing New Zealand’s famous coastlines and mountains along the way.

At Great Journeys New Zealand, we believe that the journey is just as important as the destination. We offer a range of travel experiences guaranteed to move you, from sleeping volcanoes to cascading waterfalls, sparkling cities to quaint rural farmsteads, golden beaches to snow-capped mountains.

Join us on a journey to experience the beauty of New Zealand.
