An exciting option for travelling between Greymouth on the west coast of the South Island and Christchurch on the east coast is the scenic TranzAlpine Train. Departure time is 1:45 pm and the hours will go quickly by as you experience one of the world's great train journeys. Highlights will include thrilling views of deep gorges and the forest covered mountains of the Southern Alps. Eventually your train follows the spectacular ice-fed Waimakariri River as you cross the Canterbury Plains for a late afternoon arrival in Christchurch.
