New Zealand railway journeys

There can be few better countries in the world than New Zealand to take a scenic train journey in - and luckily it has two of the best.

The TranzAlpine rail journey traverses the South Island's Southern Alps of New Zealand, from the Pacific Ocean in the east to the Tasman Sea in the west, past varied and breathtaking scenery.

The Coastal Pacific train runs from Picton to Blenheim and Kaikoura before arriving in Christchurch. New Zealand's stunning coastal scenery makes this a photographer's dream.
