Wellington Railway Station has dominated Wellington's northern gateway since 1937. It was built as the climax of an extensive governmental programme to upgrade the city's railway facilities.

Reflecting Wellington's central position within the national rail network, the Wellington Railway Station has remained New Zealand's busiest terminal. It is used daily by thousands of commuters and by sports enthusiasts travelling to the nearby Westpac Trust Stadium.

What does the venue say?

We're devoted to offering a scenic train journey that is not just unforgettable, but also accessible to all—especially our passengers with disabilities. Our Scenic Class carriages are wheelchair accessible to ensure that everyone can enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of New Zealand.  

All our scenic train carriages are fitted with hearing loops. To activate your built-in transformer, select the ‘T’ switch on the hearing aid. The hearing loop will boost the PA sound levels within the carriages.

If you are visually impaired and need assistance, then our staff are trained and happy to help you get on board and enjoy the journey.

Certified assistance dogs are also welcome aboard, although we do ask that:

  • During the trip your dog remains seated next to you restrained;
  • That you can provide documentation that your dog is a fully accredited member of Assistance Dogs International (ADI) or a full member of the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF);
  • You prepare your dog for the journey by exercising and limiting its fluid intake before boarding the train.
