We offer self drive guided rail tours on the Dargaville rail branch line and historic river trips. The rail trips are very special as there are not many places that you can run a rail cart on a New Zealand rail line operating it yourself.

You leave the old Dargaville rail station in a convoy of rail carts that have been made for safe and easy operation at 11.00am daily to travel through native bush and lush farmland at a leisurely pace with stops for commentary and refreshments. This is a must for rail fans or people who want to see places that are not accessible by any other way and experience the closest thing to operating a rail vehicle you can get. So you need to book soon as places are filling fast as this is the only place north of Rotorua you can have this unreal experience that is suitable for all ages.
