The Ultimate Rail Experience with Forgotten World Adventures
Unplugged yet still on the line as you travel the entire Forgotten World Railway on this two-day Rail Cart adventure from Taumarunui to Stratford (or reverse).
Self-drive your rail cart along a decommissioned railway line, through tunnels, over bridges and rivers steeped in history and stories of the past. Explore back-country ghost towns and discover untouched New Zealand landscapes by air, boat and rail on our guided tours. Or step off the grid entirely and travel the length of the Whanganui River connecting with the past and the present with stories of our indigenous people and colonial tales.
Explore the full 142km length of the Okahukura-Stratford Line
Travel through all 24 tunnels, cross all 98 bridges and see the remnants of the original settlements along the line
