The Coastal Pacific will be back to service for the 2019 season and it is hoped the season will be extended if possible. We will continue to keep you updated as a return to service date becomes clearer. In the meantime we can book coach transportation for you between Picton and Christchurch.
TranzAlpine Service Information: Due to work in the Otira Tunnel and other track maintenance, this train service will run between Christchurch and Arthurs Pass only and will be replaced by bus between Arthurs Pass and Greymouth on the following dates 07 May, 18 June, 30 July, 10 September, 15 October & 26 November 2018.
We depart Aoraki / Mt Cook National Park in the afternoon and head south through the tawny tussock of the Mackenzie Country. En route enjoy afternoon tea (own expense) in the quaint village of Omarama and a visit to the Jones Family Orchard (time permitting) near Cromwell.
Our tour concludes this evening in world famous Queenstown.
