Following an increasing number of potential safety incidents on KiwiRail’s Great Journeys of New Zealand scenic rail services, the outdoor viewing carriage on the Northern Explorer only will be closed until further notice while a safety solution is found.
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.
