Take a breathtaking Rail Cart ride through the beautiful Forgotten World landscape of native bush and farmland, learn the history of the rail workers and try some delicious home baking
All Aboard! Drive your own Rail Cart through 32km of stunning NZ landscape.
First we ´check you in´ to the Forgotten World Motel in Taumarunui and you are then shuttled to Okahukura to begin your amazing journey along the railroad.
As you cruise past gorgeous native bush and beautiful hill country farms, do keep an eye out for the exquisite hand-built brick tunnels, of which you will pass through 5, the longest being 1.5kms in length.
When you arrive at Matiere, the turn-around point, some lovely home baking and a drink will await you. On your return, you can experience the vista from a different angle ensuring many opportunities for that perfect photo.
Once back in Okahukura, you are then shuttled back to the Forgotten World Motel.
This a 3.5-hour journey that takes you back to the soul of old NZ.
