Departing from Blenheim, the Steam Train traverses the rolling southern hills of Marlborough, snaking through the Dashwood Pass, bursting into the beautiful Awatere Valley, and the magnificent sea of vineyards with the snow-capped 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.
The Marlborough Flyer has the advantage of balconies at both ends of each carriage which enables passengers a convenient viewing position.
Enjoy some time to stretch the legs in Seddon with a photo opportunity and convenience break before the return journey back to Blenheim Station.
These are special days for Marlburians and the general public to enjoy the Marlborough Flyer experience with friends and family at a special discounted rate.
