ARCHITECT: GEORGE TROUP (1906) Heritage New Zealand - Category 1

The current Dunedin Railroad Station in a revived Flemish renaissance style is the fourth station since the city was linked to Christchurch by rail in 1878.
It is located in what is now called Anzac Square after the Australian and New Zealand forces which served in the 1914-1918 war.
The distinctive look of the station is achieved through the use of dark basalt stone from Kokonga and lighter Oamaru limestone facing.
The columns are of Aberdeen granite.
A terracotta shingle roof from Marseilles and copper-domed cupolas add to the design.

The station is beautifully landscaped and maintained and is a must see for any visitor.
