The Otago Excursion Train Trust would love to express its support for Dunedin Railways and the way we are showing this, is by chartering the train to allow Dunedin people to explore further and wider by rail in our region.
The excursion will be departing from the Dunedin Railway Station on Saturday 3 April 2021 at 9:15am, the Explore Victorian Oamaru Excursion will operate between Dunedin and Oamaru with spectacular breathtaking views of the Pacific Coast, including Otago Harbour and Peninsula, Port Chalmers, Blueskin Bay and Karitane coastlines.
Relax and take in the beautiful rolling pastures, farmlands and the small rural towns of North Otago prior to your arrival into Oamaru and learn some facts along the way with an informative commentary.
The day excursion includes a 2-hour stopover in Oamaru. Explore some of the local attractions including Scott’s Brewery, Oamaru Steam & Rail, Victorian Oamaru, Steam Punk HQ and Oamaru Botanic Gardens along with the many galleries and boutique shops.
