The train engages in a graceful gallop meandering alongside the Para Wetlands, home to an abundance of birds, game fish and unique wetland vegetation.
The long river crossing across the Wairau River a tour highlight. Providing entry to the magnificent Wairau Valley with the southern mountains in the backdrop.
A sea of vineyards greets the train on the stretch to Blenheim town. South of Blenheim, The Marlborough Flyer then traverses the rolling southern hills of Marlborough, snaking through the Dashwood Pass, bursting into the beautiful Awatere Valley, the magnificent sea of vineyards with the snow peak of the majestic sentinel, Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku in the background.
The final stretch crosses the Awatere River on the historic Awatere Road Rail Bridge built in the same era as the train. Enjoy some time to stretch the legs in Seddon with photo opportunities and refreshments before the return journey to Picton and your ship.
