Step back in time and travel along the decommissioned Stratford-Okahukura railway in unique buggies. Like golf buggies but attached to the tracks, this is a fun, memorable way to see the gorgeous countryside and native bushland. Learn the history of these tracks along the way!
Travel through breaktakingly beautiful countryside on the now decommissioned Stratford-Okahukura railway and take a step back in time. Drive along tracks that once carried trains that transported stock and supplies in your own rail buggy, you'll travel through five magnificent tunnels steeped in history, one of them being 1.5km long and pass through picturesque countryside. A shuttle to and from the railway makes your day easy.
