Dunedin Countryside, New Zealand   

Trip Day Twenty-eight: Saturday, October 20, 2007

Taieri Gorge Railway Excursion

  The city of Dunedin is not surrounded by a great plain like the Canterbury Plain hosts the city of Christchurch. The rolling hills around Dunedin are no less beautiful, however. We saw a lot of suburban areass near Dunedin and not so many farms. These hills make good sheep pastures and they were well used.


Passengers Are Relaxed.

This is a delightful way to see the sights of an area. But train windows do not lend themselves to good pictures. They reflect the interior and glare with any light available.

Back Yards

When you travel by train you see the nation's back yard.

Many dwellers near the tracks show great pride in their yards.
