Awakeri Railcarts

Travel along a piece of New Zealand’s rich rail history in the comfort of an Awakeri railcart. You’ll experience the natural beauty and adventure of a disused branch line in your cleverly-adapted self-drive cart.

Your adventure starts from Awakeri, in the Bay of Plenty. And you’ll travel at a leisurely 20 kilometres per hour with family and friends along a piece of historic railway line. There are four bridges, numerous cuttings and bush scenes to see along the track.

The rail cars are fully self drive so you are in complete control of your rail vehicle at all times. Stop anywhere you wish to take photographs or soak up the views.
