Travel along a piece of New Zealand’s rich rail history and experience the natural beauty and adventure from the comfort of a rail cart, cleverly adapted to be self-driven along what were once fully-operational rail tracks.

All of their rail cars are fully self-driven, meaning you’ll be in complete control of your vehicle. Stop anywhere you like for photos and enjoy taking in the scenery at your own pace.

Your adventure starts from Awakeri (just outside of Whakatāne), travelling at a leisurely 25 kilometres per hour with family and friends along this historic railway line. With 4 bridges, numerous cuttings and bush scenes along the track, this is a uniquely Kiwi activity!

Perfect for the whole family – from little ones (who will love the chicken run), to more mature travellers – this is fantastic fun for everyone.

Choose from a number of rail cart options.

We recommend the bush walk and snack run. This 2.5-hour trip includes a beautiful bush walk, track-side snack and farm animal feeding. The bushwalk is gentle and those with mobility limitations can easily be catered to.

Or, if you’d prefer, the chicken run is especially good for young families. Feeding the ducks and the geese is a real highlight in addition to the train cart ride.
