4 Islay Street, Glenorchy, Queenstown-Lakes

Glenorchy Steamship Depot "The Red Shed"

The shed was rebuilt in November 1999 after floods damaged the original building.

The shed was originally built for the New Zealand Railways Department as a goods shed for freight carried on the steamers between Queenstown and Glenorchy.

As the steamers were owned by NZ Railways, Glenorchy was officially a railway station and the rails that run from the end of the wharf to the shed were the shortest piece of railway in New Zealand.
