About Dunedin Railway Station, Dunedin

Officially opened in the year 1906, Dunedin's Railway station was designed in a fashionable and highly expensive Edwardian Baroque style. This building arguably portrays Dunedin's wealthy inheritance. During the city's prosperous years, the railway station was the busiest, handling up to 100 trains every day. It is New Zealand’s most photographed heritage building. Today, however, only sightseeing trains stop at this station. It has been converted into a tourist attraction and an event centre. Much of its ground floor is used as a restaurant and the upper floor houses an art gallery. Visitors can view the exterior from the well kept grounds or wander inside to marvel at the marvellous interiors.
