On selected Sundays and Saturdays of the month, we will hold a “Super Sunday/Saturday Specials”. 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.

Kindly note that although the journey on the Marlborough Flyer from Picton-Blenheim takes 50 mins, the journey from Blenheim-Picton will take 60 mins.

This discounted rate has been made possible due to the support of our local sponsors and also due to the fact that on Non-Cruise-Ship Sundays, the train has time to run two return journeys (instead of one) as it can leave earlier in the morning – this allows the Marlborough Flyer to run at lower per trip operating costs, and this saving is passed on to locals.

Picton:                                        10h00        and         15h00

Blenheim:                                  13h20        and         17h45

The journey from Picton-Blenheim takes 50 mins and the journey from Blenheim-Picton takes 60 mins, which includes the challenging climb out of Picton on a 1-in-37 grade, the fourth steepest rail in New Zealand.

If you wish to book a return journey, go to the One-Way trip option (Picton-Blenheim or Blenheim-Picton) and at the end, you will be prompted to add the return journey option to your booking (or you can leave it as a One-Way trip).
