Dunedin is the terminus for the Taieri Gorge Railway (tel (03) 477 4449), which travels to Middlemarch where there is a connecting coach service to Queenstown. Dunedin’s train station is on Anzac Street, about a five-minute walk from the Octagon.


Although Dunedin is a small city, it helps to take a bus to get to the good hitchhiking spots.
Take a bus to Pine Hill and try your luck on State Highway 1 if you’re heading north to Christchurch. If you’re heading south, take the Mosgiel bus and get off at Kenmont.
