Snaking its way between New Zealand’s most interesting cities – its largest, Auckland, and its capital, Wellington, The Overlander is the scenic route to discovering the North Island. Trains run almost daily, with an early morning departure from Auckland, arriving in Wellington in the early evening.

The onboard café was reasonably well stocked with snacks and drinks, and we were also given the chance to have a snack during our brief stop at “National Park Station”.
