Departing from Auckland CBD, you will enjoy a relaxing two hour scenic cruise to the Coromandel Peninsula, where you'll then jump on board a complimentary shuttle bus to Driving Creek. Here, you will embark on just over an hour-long ride on New Zealand's steepest mountain railway, meandering through a native regenerating kauri forest. As you twist and turn through a montage of green, hear the fascinating story of Driving Creek Railway's creator and how this place came to be, and see pottery sculptures and artworks as the train winds its way to the EyeFull Tower lookout for surreal views over Coromandel town and beyond. After the ride, you will head to Driving Creek Pottery for a 1.5 hour pottery class. Feel inspired as you learn the process of turning clay into treasured works, trying your hand at wheel throwing and the basics of slab building, coiling or sculpture with a professional potter.
