Coastal Pacific

The Coastal Pacific (formerly TranzCoastal) train operates between Picton on the northeastern tip of New Zealand's South Island and the city of Christchurch, approximately 340km (211 miles) to the south.

The line follows the rugged Pacific Island coast against a backdrop of two mountain ranges; namely, the Seaward and Inland Kaikoura Ranges. Along the way, passengers can take advantage of the Coastal Pacific's open viewing carriage and single-class carriages with large windows.

South of Picton, the route passes through Marlborough, arguably New Zealand's best wine growing area, before stretching ahead between the mountains and the sea to Christchurch, known as the most 'English' of New Zealand's cities. The Coastal Pacific train is equipped with a buffet car for the convenience of passengers.
