There are some good shuttle services from Dunedin to Queenstown and Wanaka, and this clearly is the way to go if you are on a budget.

A shuttle bus from the CBD to the airport would already cost you NZ$ 30, and a taxi about $ 75, add the airfare, then the transportation from Queenstown Airport to the town centre (not far though, so not expensive)… This is quite some money – and the trip is not even very convenient. So better just sit down in a bus which takes you from A to B.

It is also the perfect way if you want to cycle or walk on the Otago Rail Trail from Middlemarch to Clyde, or any stage along the way. Most of those shuttle services have frequent stops, so you can get off and back on wherever you want.

We used Catch-a-Bus to get back to our car after having cycled on the Otago Rail Trail. While I waited with the bicycles in Middlemarch my husband took the shuttle to Alexandra, and came back to pick me up. They would also transport bikes for $ 10 extra. It runs between Dunedin and Wanaka.


Wanaka ConneXions services Queenstown and Wanaka. Check out here:


If you just want to get from Dunedin to Queenstown you best use one of the big overland companies like InterCity or Nakedbus. They have very limited stops along the way.
