The Dunedin Train Station is the most photographed building in New Zealand, the second most photographed building in the Southern Hemisphere (after the Sydney Opera House). I can understand why. We took so many pictures of it that I’m dividing them into two posts. It is an incredible piece of architecture. This station was completed in 1906. One hundred ten years ago, people built beautiful buildings!
The gardens in front of it are absolutely amazing, too, even this early in the spring, or late in the winter—whichever you choose!
This is the steps going down from the porch in front of the door.
I let Mr. Intellectual give us a sense of scale for one of the pillars.
This excursion train is still in use.
