Save 10% on the Seasider Rail Trip
Taieri Gorge Railway is once again running the popular Seasider train between Dunedin and Palmerston. This section of railway has spectacular views over Otago Harbour and the wild Otago coastline and is considered one of the ‘mustdo’ railway trips in New Zealand!
Take an added tour through the Macraes Gold Mine and make a day of it. Stop in Palmerston and take advantage of visiting the Bird and Butterfly Haven or enjoy the great café and craft shop scene. A coach picks up passengers directly from the train and includes a lunch at Stanley’s Hotel before returning you to Pukerangi to meet the Taieri Gorge Railway on its way home. One way fares are also available.
Dates: Most Wednesdays and Saturdays during Summer Season

Clean and comfortable motel on the outskirts of town – approximately 1 mile from the centre.
Friendly staff and good value for money.
We have stayed in Dunedin at least ten times over the past few years and have booked reservations in B and B’s and hotels in all price ranges.
We decided that what was important to us most is a clean and friendly place.
While the Tourist Court Motel was built the 70′s, it has been tastefully updated.
The owner are extremely friendly and accommodating (they made sure the rooms were toasty warm when we arrived on a cold winter day).
And, at how many motels in this price range do you get a morning newspaper delivered to your door?
Most importantly, the rooms were spotlessly clean and incredibly spacious.
The room came with a complete kitchen, separate sitting area, and free wireless internet.
I have already booked again with them for our next trip to Dunedin.
Mercer Island, Washington
This place is run by the nicest, most helpful couple.
We stopped in to check availability, and since it was graduation, all they had open was their budget room.
It was small, but the space was utilized and decorated so well, we didn’t mind!
The room also had a fantastic flat screen TV and DVD player (much appreciated since it did rain that night and stayed in).
Conveniently located about a 15 minute walk to the Octagon.

This market opens, rain, hail or snow! A gathering of some of the finest producers of food in the Otago region. Also some excellent food and drink. A must for a Saturday morning.
